Then I screwed up my courage and started on the embroidery, using gold thread. What a mess! It was far too glitzy, so I took it out and used some gold cotton. Ah! much better. But I knew I'd never make another, so the block just got shuffled around until it landed in the back of the closet. When one of my guilds announced a UFO program, I dug it out, and yesterday I added a cotton border and did a little machine quilting. Today I added some hand quilting (black on black - tough to see) and stitched the facing to the back. Voila!
