Not much seems to be happening with the Applique. I have embroidered the pillars in the style of Durham Cathedral - a nod to the city I'm taught in - and there will be other Durham references later on. At least I think I now have a plan of work and the order it will be done in so hopefully there will be more to see in the next week or so. I had a really bad day yesterday and spent six hours at Tracy's working on the embroidering the capitol of the pillars only to decide that it would all have to be redone. Sometimes that's just the way it goes and one thing you have to learn is not to become frustrated - it is quite normal and happens to EVERYBODY.
I've just about finished the flower head now so now we're onto the middle section.
