Tissue Paper Poppy 3







I have finished the final poppy embroidery now. This involved making a small print block and twin needle stitching over some strips of Mawata Cap silk dyed with silk paint.











I used Bokhara Couching stitch again and machine embroidery with some satin stitch blobs. Now all three are mounted and I hope at least one will be in a local summer exhibition, which has given me the incentive to work them through. Its nice when inspiration comes and the work just seems to come together.
