Project 2013 – Poppy 1

Last night’s television exercise was hand stitching the first of a few poppy motifs. It was hard to stitch. The fabric is very stiff because it was mono painted with black acrylic full strength.

I like the poppy motif – it is easy to draw and can be very elegant if it has tall stems.

I like the threads that extend beyond the patch – not sure how I will be able to keep them when I assemble all the patches together.

Previewing the post, it is time to change my header photo and my background – they are too In your face!

From a very snowy Wiltshire. Keep warm and safe.
