Progress on leaf pattern

So far I've outlined all but two of the leaves, and put borders around the boxes that are the border for the whole thing. There are 16 of them and I'm going to have to come up with 16 fillings.See More

Etching-like picture of latest design

This is a proof of concept. If I drew the stitches carefully instead of using cross-hatching to represent them, this would look something like the finished product, with the black background showing through the pulled-thread fillings.
