Leaf Miner

LeafMinerLeafMinerDetail1Coreopsis flowers fresh from my garden and Eucalyptus leaves ecoprinted onto silk broadcloth and mounted to cradled board (12X12).  Hand embroidered with button thread.

Leaf miners are tiny insects that spend their tiny lives eating the inside of leaves.  My stitching was inspired by the patterns their tunnels make.
