- Stitch 1 - Anundsjö Stitch was used for the pattern on the apron, and the stem and flower of the cornflower. I am impressed how flexible this stitch is, and that it can be a real building block - a stitch Lego!
- Stitch 2 - Back Stitch outlines the design. I am very pleased with the even stitches I have learned to achieve.
- Stitch 3 - Cross Stitch decorates the hem of the dress. As this is stitched on plain weave fabric and without the aid of waste canvas, I have paid attention to make the stitches as even as possible, and even the back, although not important, looks neat.
- Stitch 4 - Danish Knot Stitch was used to make up the shoes. Not the best of stitches for filling the shoes but they add a knobby look - ostrich leather shoes? wow, Sue must be well off!
- Stitch 5 - Ermine Stitch decorates the bonnet. This stitch is also one that can be changed in many ways, here I chose to use it in its basic form.
