Oak Leaf and Acorn Border - Part Two

I finished the embroidery on my oak leaf and acorn border project.  If you remember when I started this, I was filling in the acorn base using the Long and Short Stitch in two different greens:

After finishing the first acorn, I decided to try using a single color for the base.  I like the result much better!

I outlined the acorn top with Back Stitch and filled it with Jacobean Couching Stitch and single thread French Knots.  The brown accent dots are all three thread French Knots.  The leaves are all done in Long and Short Stitch with Stem Stitch center and side veins.

The color palette for this project is so pretty.  Here are the floss color numbers:

Just gorgeous, Kim! And I agree, the one color base is perfect.
