Early embroidery, ‘Daisy’

This piece of embroidery was probably done when I was in my early teens. I recall this was a stamped canvas from a kit now discarded & so, I don’t know the designer. I remember painstakingly covering the stamped lines so that none would show. And,  I remember wanting the threads to be smooth. But, I must have used my fingers because I’ve only recently learned about & bought a laying tool. Maybe, I really don’t need one! Types of stitches used in this appear to be straight stitch & chain stitch (maybe french knot).
