Normally, I'm a word person, I'd much rather have instructions written out to follow. This time however, the instructions were set out very clearly, so,by a bit of reading, and a lot more of looking at the diagram, I've finally cracked the joining bit. It took me until the fourth row to work out the easiest route to take. After that, joining the flowers into rows, and then the rows to each other became much easier to do.
From here, there are another five rows to add, each one getting longer. I'm being good and sewing in the ends after each row, which is just as well, they take longer to do than the joining!
I must say, I'm delighted with the way this is going. I never, ever thought I'd ever manage to do something like this. Mind you, it's not finished yet, so we'll see how it all turns out in the end.
