Still in the spirit of stitching fall foliage, here's a leaf stitched on an 8-way center.
This ball is marked in a combination 8 division and I'm stitching large maple leaves at each of the six 8-way intersections of guidelines on the ball. Shifting the spindles a little bit or a lot really changes the look of the leaf. Here's how...
Place pins 3cm from the center. Stitch a partial spindle with the tip extending 1cm past the guideline.
Stitch a spindle with the top extending 0.5cm past the guideline.
Stitch another spindle with the top extending 0.5cm past the guideline.
Stitch the last spindle with the tips even with the guidelines.
Add veins and a stem.
You can vary the placement and the length of spindles to make different leaves.
