The tiny leaves were made using a "v" shape, rather than making tiny, individual leaves. I then stitched the stem stitches over the leaves, making them look like two separate leaves. And...I redid my little circles around the compass. I still used the wool felt, but made them smaller, and attached them with a blanket stitch done with one-ply floss.
Thanks for taking time to visit! I always enjoy reading every one's comments :)
