Petal One

I worked on the Oriental Poppies for a while. I started by putting in the darkest red rows of long and short stitch on the back petal of the top poppy. I then added the next lighter color and am working my way down to the base of the petal. I added the third color and also added in the darkest lines at the very top as well.

This is going to be just gorgeous! I do look forward to watching it develop. Please inform Jane that I spoke for it first.

Rats. Judy beat me to it.

Oh, well, it is going to be lovely when it is done. I love long and short stitch for petals.
