one you're thinking of. Some are authentic 16th-century patterns;
others are modern.
There's a nice one online at: http://www.blackworkarchives.com/ in
the "Fruits and flowers" section, but as the author, Paula Marmor,
carefully explains, "These patterns are inspired by historical
needlework of sixteenth and seventeenth century England, but they are
all [my] original designs." There's another leaves-and-acorns pattern
on the same site under "Seasons."
I'll scan a couple of the period ones and put them in an "Oak Leaves"
folder in this group's Files section if there's room -- give me a day
