The final petal

Woohoo!  I finished the last petal on the foreground poppy!  Then using a single strand of Splendor I did rows of Outline Stitch to create the stems for the poppies.  The top stem has three rows and the others all have four.

It looks great, I love poppies, can't wait to see it finished.

Gosh, this piece must be larger than I thought if those tiny stems are 3-4 rows of stem stitch!

It looks lovely, Pat.

Yes, but the rows are done with a single strand.

I love your piece. I didn't choose it but I guess I 'll reconsider
Very nice job
