Today is an important day: it marks the first milestone in completing the Banner. And here it is:
It's a sheet of foxgloves, and yes, you've seen other ones before, but what makes this one important, is that it's the last one. There are four foxgloves on the Banner - two each on the left and right panels - and this is the fourth one. For the first time, I've done all the embroidery for a particular flower. No more foxgloves, ever!
Of course, it'd be better if it was the last of the ferns, but their turn will come, and for the first time, I really feel the end is in sight. We can start to count down a few more milestones in the weeks to come.
