Ultimate Embroidery Experience

The thing that all embroiders fear, I sat on my needle roll and had to pull four needles out of my butt!  You know that sooner or later it will happen it is just a matter of time!

Today I started an Elizabethan style embroidery.  The pattern is from "Exploring Elizabethan Embroidery" by Dorothy Clarke.  The pattern I chose is called blossom and features flower petals that are needle woven in button hole stitches.  I want to turn it into a Christmas ornament for the tree.  It is on a unbleached muslin background and I am using one strand of cotton floss.  Looks like it will be nice.  But since I have had a needling experience I think I will just read tonight!
