Advice needed please!

Hello dear friends. Just popping in to show you some progress on my Imperial Blooms (Sue Spargo) BOM - I know some of you are keen to see it.

I have completed the applique section and ready to tackle the embroidery. Not quite sure how that will go - not much of an embroiderer actually.

It's easy to do the wool applique since no turning is required - but I'm not sure if I'm doing it well/correctly. Here is a close up.

Does that look OK to you who may be quite experienced at this? Because the needle is thick and the threads in the fabric are to, sometimes the stitching almost frays the edges (does that make sense?) and it looks a bit rough to me. I'm hoping that the embroidery will disguise that a bit.

Any advice will be appreciated. Hope all is well with y'all.

Back soon.
