First of three

This little poppies piece is one of three little ones I am doing as gifts for friends in England. We HOPE, if the petrol strike does not happen, to be visiting them in May! If it does happen, you are all stuck with me :-( Obviously , this is only a top and still needs thread painting and quilting etc. Sorry about the wrinkles, This is not the ideal spot to hang anything for a photo shoot!
