I used green silk organza fabric for the leaves and outlined the edges in back stitch. The branch was made with bamboo yarn, which I twirled to form the texture.   The music notes and detail on Olive: I used Rajmahal and DMC thread and stem, back and straight stitch.   Close-up detail … Click on the image to enlarge     I really did enjoy this project!   Remember that OLIVE is also eligible for the international Silk Ribbon Embroidery Competition 2012   I have almost completed “keep a green tree in your heart” and will share her with you in the weeks to come...
