More Stitching on my Third Mixed Media Picture

13th July 2015

It has rained ALL day today so this afternoon I spent an enjoyable 3 hours stitching on my background....

....I used Myfanwy's silk thread for the stems, machine couched in place and finished the detail with french knots....


......today added some orange poppies using a selection of my hand dyed fabrics....


......close ups....


......used an idea from Julie Broad and tried orange detail on the seed head, quite pleased with the result!




Need to add hand stitching, not quite sure yet but RD likes it so far!
