All of this particular set of patterns comes with a bit of iron on applique....in this one it's this sweet sunflower face. I love that component.
I used both stem stitch and back stitch in this pattern, as well as a running stitch, some satin stitch, and a few french knots.
This isn't the border shown on Kathy's pattern. That one was darling flying geese, which I automatically assumed I would do. However, one of my geese decided to fly north, another west, the third east and so on. Honestly I do not know what happened but my mother would have called the strips "wonky jawed". I tossed them in the scrap heap and went for something a bit simpler. Which translates to something that wouldn't have me pulling out my hair. I hope this afternoon to work on the other finished ones but their borders are debatable....we'll see if simple becomes better. :)
