Hand sewn poppy

I do enjoy the beautiful fragile poppies against the complementary green fields. The weather has been so hot and dry this year that the poppies are fading and the fields are rapidly turning yellow. This piece is made of fabric scraps and a few herringbone stitches and a lot of  running stitches. It is not  necessary to know many different stitches . A few favourite stitches can take you a long way. Variation in the size of the stitch, the thickness of the thread and the direction of the stitch gives you endless possibilities.
