This is what my sewing room looks like after I've pulled neutrals and played a while.
So far so good......
......but after sleeping on it I decided I really did not like that pinkish strip across the middle.
Ahhhhh, that's much better!
It needed a little pop.
I couldn't think where to go next, but my grandson Gavin suggested that I add my favorite flowers somewhere. Poppies! How could I go wrong with poppies?
Naturally, my first thought was to appliqué them, but I woke up during the night thinking of the fabric I had left from my "Poppies-A-Plenty" quilt which I shared in this post.
I've never done broderie perse before, but now is the time to try new things, right? So I cut out some poppies.
This is what it looks like tonight. A good start I'd say.
I'm feeling pretty pleased so far. The little green strip I added looks good. I'm waiting for the next wave of inspiration to hit. Who knows where it will go from here.....
