Poppies!

Yes, that's poppies and not puppies.  Surprising, no?

Today we stitched the poppies on the Zecca hummingbird canvas!  So many fun details.  Or maybe not so many details.  Depends upon your view of things.


There are orange and red poppies.

Both are stitched with composite stitches that are sort of floral.  One stitch for the red poppies and one stitch for the orange poppies.  Now here's where it gets interesting.  The threads are rearranged withing the pattern to make the poppies look different.


Keeping the patterns the same but slightly manipulating the threads keeps the piece from getting busy and creates depth.  Yes, my mind works in mysterious ways.

Lesson 3 is in 2 weeks.  It will be here before you know it.  We have a few canvases in stock if you've been thinking of joining us, now is the time.  Give us a call at 410.296.0405 or order online.
