pattern // a poppy to remember
While driving through my neighborhood, I spotted some beautiful poppies growing in an even more beautiful garden. I've never tried growing poppies, although I did draw a tiny poppy embroidery pattern for the 50 States Stitching Club. Seeing those poppies, however, made me want to make a new poppy pattern.
As I started drawing what is at least inspired by poppies, I also remembered that this flower is often connected with Memorial Day. And it's nearly Memorial Day, so I guess I was inspired at just the right time!
I think this pattern would look great in a hoop, but it would also be beautiful stitched as a sachet or a little pin cushion. For the centers, I'm picturing pistil stitch. If you'd rather, straight stitches and french knots would also work.
