Nearly there!

 Please excuse the fuzzy photos...
 I was trying to take close ups in the garden...
 where the light was good...
 but we live on a hill in the highest little market town in England...
 and there was a bit of a head wind!
Aah that's better, although I'm not sure there is an inch left that I haven't already machine embroidered! Just the backing to stitch on and it'll be all finished.

That's looking really good - the free machining takes ages doesn't it. I have been dumfing a little poppy picture today - I found a frame and had the urge to fill it! Maxine is coming to play tomorrow - she will probably whisk it away and flog it lol!!!!

Fiona, this is truly a work of Art! I look at my brooches and must say you are indeed very talented!

Someday I will have to explain how I first checked out your blog due to its name!

This is such beautiful work, I've really enjoyed seeing it. I'd be very interested to see some progress shots next time you make one, to sort of give us an idea of the process you go through.
