End of an Era?

It nearly always happens this way with me when I embroider. Excitement at a new design and stitching those first stitches in virgin fabric.Intense concentration to do your best, extreme frustration when it doesn't go right. And then.................all of a sudden it's finished!

Welsh daffodil, pulled threads, satin stitch, long and short, stem and seeding.

Crown - pulled threads, stem, satin, french knots and round eyelets

Scottish thistle - stem, eyelets, mountmellick and shadow stitch

The completed sampler

Do you have the same roller coaster as you embroider?
