Crafty: Embroidery pattern

I've been kind of slacking off on my latest embroidery project. I am hoping that by posting it online I'll be inspired to finally finish it:

I am using this pattern in white thread on two coral pillowcases. The design is copied from a tiara by Chaumet. It's about six inches long on the hem of the pillowcase. You can click on the photo for a larger, printable version.

I think it's all that satin stitching that has put me off the project for a while. I took me a long time just to finish the greek key pattern and I haven't started on the floral part just yet. And that's just the first pillowcase!
