First try at crewel

My book arrived and as I have been confined to the house this week I have read it and was itching to have a go. I had some old orange material (it is much brighter than the photo showed and i thought it would show a contract. Unfortunately only biro would stay on it, I tried all my different types of marking pens but its only a try out and as it goes I am covering it all anyway. The flowers took me a couple of hours but were fairly straightforward. Its edged in split stich. I get to try doing the leaves and branches next.
