Susanna Bauer's Embroidered Leaves

I wouldn't think it possible to embroider something as delicate as a leaf, but Susanna Bauer, an artist in the UK, can do it. She carefully wraps and edges leaves and, even more impressively, splices and shapes them with thread.

Close! Crochet and embroidery are both kinds of needlework.
'Needlework is a broad term for the handicrafts of decorative sewing and textile arts. Anything that uses a needle for construction can be called needlework. The definition may expand to include related textile crafts such as a crochet hook or tatting shuttles...'
The definition includes embroidery, but crochet and embroidery are not the same thing. A better description therefore might be 'amazing needlework on leaves.'

Nonetheless, the artwork you found is very cool; in that respect, it doesn't matter what term you use. Good find! :)
