Moving right along

The Irises stitched

The Poppies stitched

The Sunflowers ready for stitching
I have done the thread paintng on the poppies and on the irises now and the sunflowers are next.The tear away stabilizer I used is not wonderful. It is wonderfully hard to tear away!!! In the end, I am leaving it where the pieces are small and removing it behind the larger open areas. That will be fine . So far, I am pleased but I will be very glad when the job is done.
