Gold Work Sampler - Motif #8

The large rose motif took me longer to stitch than any other motif and I made a few mistakes with the counting so had to remove some stitches and rework them. Queen stitch is even more fiddly to remove than it is to stitch and I found it virtually impossible to do without damaging the thread.

I remember finding that motif a bit tricky too, but when I did have to unpick something, the silk didn't survive, but the linen showed barely a mark!
