A riddle

Do you ever do what I do and despite listing stitching projects add extras in without any concern for time available?
I do this constantly but usually manage to talk sensibly to myself and not get carried away.   But this time I am going to take action and with a deadline of April.   My current manager will return to her original position at the end of her secondment in April and I want to make a thank you gift for her.  She is keen on patchwork and gardening so I pondered much and finally inspiration struck.

A journal book cover with her initial in Embroidered Garden Flowers.   What a clever idea is that!

  3. And what a kind gift that is!
    I am working on an initial too, but on a greeting card. My choice of embroidery stitch is the Heavy Chain Stitch which I recently learned and LOVE!
