1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Poppy Hoopla on: December 13, 2017 10:54:24 AM
I made this for dharma_rebel in the 12 days of Christmas swap.  I knew she liked poppies so I found a clipart of a poppy, enlarged it and used it as a rough guideline for my poppy shape.  
It is almost all satin stitch.  It used about 5-6 skeins of embroidery thread.
The center is black felt with straight stitches to hold it down and then the same in yellow for the very center.


(the creepy face in the background is the cover of a boardgame.  I didn't realize it was there until I uploaded the photo!)

I made this for lindyv in the 12 days of Christmas swap.  I've been trying to improve my embroidery.  I saw this (or something similar) on her pinterest and decided to try it.  It includes satin stitch, french knots, back stitch

It actually didn't take that long, the stitches are all really long.  But it did use a LOT of thread!  Maybe 5-6 skeins?

geekgirl (again!) that poppy must have taken a hundred years to embrodier.

that envelope from veghorsegirl is super cute.  Love the paper doll.  I definitely want to make a paperdoll myself sometime.
kbrison those quilt notecards are fabulous!

I am now done with all my swaps and my life / work has calmed down.  If anyone is interested in doing a personal Happy Mail swap through December (maybe send out early January) let me know Wink  I wouldn't mind having an easy swap to work on during the holidays.

I love the kraft paper and twine look!  Dharma_Rebel - I can't wait to get the packages!

Hey - mine are kraft and twine too!  It's reused all reused packaging, so it's not as neat looking Smiley

I kind of messed that part up too because some of the non-smalls I thought should be opened first so my partners could get more use out of them for the season!

Well shoot, I forgot to reread the opening requirements about the smalls days 1-6 etc so I have mine all labeled mixed around in sizes. I knew it was one a day, but totally forgot the rest. OOPS. I crafted both for Summer and her young son, and I wanted to make sure that they alternated who opened a present every couple days or so, and the way I crafted for them didn't correspond to smalls first, mediums second, and larges last. Gah!

This has been a great gallery.  I've gone through and made a list of all the things I saw so next time around I will have plenty of ideas!
