I certainly appreciate all the feedback I received today and tonight I have done some drawing. I made an exact size block and have drawn some leaves, etc. on it. Those 2 blocks "square in a square" are the ones giving me problems.
Sorry it turned sideways. The leaf vine is my border up each side. I seem to loose the maple and oak leaf every time I put something around them. The center squares aren't very big. So I tried this:
I ignored the center square and filled the bigger square with a leaf. I was also wondering about replacing the fern with either a dead tree or a pine tree. What do you think? I could maybe find a stitch to fill the maple and oak leaf similar to what I did with the plain leaf. I appreciate any feedback you wish to offer.
