Poppies, Plaiting and Produce

"Poppies Panel 3" for someone special's birthday.

More than anything else during the work on these last three pieces I have come to love the backs; their sketchy quality. Will it be a shame to cover them up?

At last we have had three days in a row virtually rain free. All the vegetables in the garden are slow and await some more warmth so that they can get enthusiastic!
The garlic is all harvested and is awaiting plaiting.
Wait!! I think garlics are the next plants i have to sketch and stitch!!

Tonight there are some small but tasty offerings for supper.


  1. Interesting - I too, love the quality of the reverse side of your poppies work, and was struck by the same thing looking at the piece I was machine quilting last week... Maybe we should be mounting them to be reversible some how! Best wishes, sus

  2. The reverse of your poppies are certainly good enough to hang in their own right. Your veg are well in advance of ours, courgettes not even blooming yet.
    Still now our hosepipe ban is lifted, that's a relief LOL.

  3. It would be a shame to cover the back. How bout making a small quilt frame and hanging it from that so that both sides can be seen. Or you could buy one here.

  4. yes I'm liking the back too. love the sketch like quality of the stitching

  5. Oh yum, look at all of that! I wouldn't cover the's just as interesting as the front.

  6. Oh I do love your poppies - they are one of my favourite flowers and you've done them proud!
