First off, that border would have taken forever to stitch (but it is very pretty.) Secondly, I LOVE the deep, deep, deep bands of flowers that make up the bulk of the center of the sampler. The second and last bands are cool, because the flowers only face up (many bands have upward and downward-facing flowers.) And how awesome is that deer?
