Finished and framed. Applique, machine- and hand-embroidery on Klona cotton, design by my daughter. Thanks to Sandy for confirming that the puckering was because I hadn't stabilised the fabric. I had to stretch and iron it out as best I could - it still shows a little but I photographed it in a favourable light;-)
On to the next project now (unless I can find another distraction) which is to back and quilt this...
...using the walking foot I have just bought for myself with birthday money. Yep, I actually quilted all the quilts I have made so far without a walking foot - ignorance mostly, and you might say it shows.... It can be done though!
I'm going to do a couple of test runs first to try out different threads.
Unfortunately I am an idiot and didn't buy enough of the linen I wanted to back it with, so I am going to have to resort to some ingenuity and a rethink.
