tree applique

last night sara and i started working on our first applique. I have never spent much time doing hand stitching, but I thought I'd give it at least one shot. My intention was to use a blanket stitch, but some how ended up making an interesting cross-stitch. Even though it was started by mistake, I decided it was pretty neat and kept with it.
This is a simple tree design for one of the kid convertible bags. I think I will stick with my machine stitching for future appliques and use hand-stitching to accentuate certain parts.

Fair has come a long way on her own stitching. I am only threading her needle and tieing off the ends now. Pretty soon we will be seeing her own works on some bags...
