I have decided to do a larger version of Poppies Aglow. It will be called Poppies Aglow II! How novel, I hear you cry! I have only just begun and have been dyeing some new brilliant colours - in marked contrast to the pastel pretties from Monet's Hydrangeas.
I drew the single poppies in a little more detail to separate the petals to make the construction a little more realistic.
So now, I am underway with my poppies traced and ready to sort the colours- which will go where, and, do I need any more colours? I have lots of odds and sods but this is REALLY a bright piece !
I believe I might post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com too so you can see that I AM gainfully employed! I have not quilted the hydrangeas yet. I will get this one to the quilting stage too and then I can pick away at it over the summer. Drop by and see what everyone is doing.
