An almost done floral embroidery from Trish Burr's  'Crewel and Surface Embroidery' book. Very fun. Very relaxing. I'm using Appleton wool and DMC cotton floss and pearl. I have been allergic to every other wool I've touched however,  Appleton is an exception. It stitches up beautifully slightly fuzzy, which adds dimension. If you make a mistake, like I did it comes out easily enough. I stitched in the pale peacock blue on the leaf where I wanted pale green. It came out just fine.
