Stitching at Home and Abroad
At the moment I am doing an appliqué using the Jubilee Rose pattern.

The detail in the flower itself is a different matter. I have had to follow the pattern exactly, and have done four lines of stitching side by side so that they show up sufficiently against the red.
If I get my skates on I should have it finished by the end of the week, but knowing me...
