Frolicking Amongst Chicory Flowers

I've been stitching a small design -  83x83, inspired by my back pasture which is filled with the soft periwinkle blue of wild chicory flowers.  They are a dainty flower, with stems a tough as any nylon rope.  They have quite a history and range of uses, included a coffee substitute.  My design has taken some few liberties with the little flower, which can be blue, lavendar or white.  My Tiny,red suited elf  - yet to emerge in the design - is having quite a time as he plays hide and seek in the sunshine.
