This week there has been more sewing than reading. The photo shows my work. This DMC card kit I have had in my stash for years, so I thought it was about time I got out the needle. I like the finished result although it's not perfect by a long way. The intructions stated long and short stitch for the petals. I don't know why but I haven't mastered that stitch, mine always look so messy. After numerous attempts, sewing and pulling out I gave in to my old favourite Satin stitch. Long and short stitches would have probably made it look neater but c'est la vie!
