After working non-stop on Poppy the first day, my week has been too busy to do anything but hold her and stare at her sweet face! We are gearing up for our annual camping trip and between getting things together for that and a busy week at work, left no time for Poppy. But here is how she is coming along.
I started using the vintage nail heads (I think that's what they are called) as a necklace, and then it turned into more of like an outline that went around her back and before I knew it, I was stitching a field of poppy buds on her skirt and filling in with a carpet stitch (boucle) around that.Which really hides the buds, but I'm just going with it and see what happens.
Lisa also gifted me this crazy curved needle which I'm still getting the hang of, but it is really neat!
I wish everyone a spectacular safe 4th of July--get out there and "oooh" and "aaah" at everything our great country has to offer and ignore the rest :) I'll be busy tree-hugging!
