Anyway, back to the progress, I am getting the petals appliqued to a piece of linen. At the rate of approximately six an evening this will take some time....patience is a virtue they tell me! (the mustard stitch visible here is tacking, not some kind of artistic statement.)
I have been sorting through my embroidery threads looking for a matching red to embellish the applique. At the moment the card in the foreground is in the lead but I'm not 100% convinced and may have to buy some more.
And I have also been packaging orders from the etsy shop, including this jar pincushion. Now that christmas is almost here I am hoping to see more traffic passing through that little part of my empire!!
