Getting rolling

Next, we needed to trace the design.  Here I have taped it to my light box.
 I marked the center of the canvas and traced the design with my Pigma pen......(This picture shows you the pretty green background color if you enlarge it by clicking on it.)

And, now we are outlining the top poppy petals.  This is to pad the edges of the petal for the upcoming long and short stitches.

I've long admired the beautiful designs of Pat VanCleve and will enjoy following along on this.

What they said. I love seeing the process of getting ready to stitch as it is always new and interesting to me.

Thanks for all the prep work, Pat!
