In 2003, I stitched a Yellow Sunflower Welcome for my sister Pam because it is her favourite flower. I didn't want to finish it as a picture. I put it in a wooden tray (clear coat of protection on the wood) and cut a piece of plexiglass to cover the cross stitching, and finished it with a bead of clear caulking. She loved it, and it is useful. Photo is shown before plexiglass was added (easier to photograph without the glare).
