I have made some progress on this because I am waiting for some linen band to arrive so thought best get on with the TW. I have worked on the leaves, which I am finding difficult, the border and the tail which I espected to be a nightmare but in fact it has not been too bad. I know some areas look as though they have measles but this has been to try to use up the blend in my needle. The backstitching would be very difficult but years ago I had some help from Emily. So Emily if by any chance you read this blog many, many thanks. I have now to work out how to wind the fabric down. It seems silly but I have several different frames and it is so long since I used this one, which is excellent, that it will be trial and error to sort it out.
