Putting Myself Out There!!!

 Hello folks!  I am going to be teaching some classes at work.  An embroidery class seemed like a good idea to add to our list of fun classes.  There seems to be a real resurgence in stitcheries!!  Perhaps some people feel intimidated by embroidery and feel they don't know too many stitches!  This is what this class is designed to address.  We felt, french knots, lazy daisies, chain stitch, stem stitch and  boullion knots were a good repertoire to learn.  Then most stitcheries would be well within the scope of my students.
Here's the thing!!!  I had to come up with a pattern that would cover all those stitches.  Well, I sweated over that and finally got something down on paper.  Then the embroidery began.  When I finished it I was not really sure how much I liked it.  A few days passed and I decided to just take the plunge and finish the project.  I added a few more flowers and french knots.  Then I trimmed the embroidery down and finally stitched it into a pillow cover.  Tomorrow I take my sample into the shop!!!  I hope it will be acceptable and that it will be met with enthusiasm and not "What on earth is that".  I am nervous, but I am hoping for a positive reaction.  Will let you all know how that went!!!
