Ribbed Leaves with Fly Stitch

Anna Scott has developed a highly textured ribbed leaf done with fly stitch and has instructions on her blog.  You can see the influence of crewel in this piece which is done with one strand of silk perle on linen.  If you use a sharp needle instead of a tapestry needle, this can easily be done on needlepoint canvas.  It would really add texture to a floral piece.
