Here is one of the little pieces of linen I painted at the weekend:
With a little layering and stitching, it can be integrated into a small textured landscape:
A very happy birthday today to my mum, who likes poppies.
Wel done. I love the final result.
Your Mom will love it. I also love poppies and you did a beautiful job. Best Wishes to your Mum!
Thank you for your wishes Jeannie! I have always loved poppies – they are so bright and colourful yet they also remind us of the terrible sufferings during the First World War. To me they are a symbol of reconciliation and hope for peace.
Delightful – and Happy Birthday to your Mum as well!
What a lovely little landscape and thoughtful gift for your mum. I love poppies too!!
j adore ce que tu realises tes coaquelicots sont sublime je ne sais ps comment tu les as faits mais bravo bisesssssssssssss
I love the contrast of the paler colors and the bright red poppies. A perfect gift for your very special Mum!
Very beautiful work indeed- and the love you put into it shines right through!! Warm wishes from afar to your mum on her special day…
happy birthday to your mom! I hope she has a fabulous day!
i like this technique….how does the color hold to washing?
Not at all! Care label would say ‘do not ever get it wet, do not place in direct sunlight (and never feed after midnight)’
I figured if it was just decorative, it wouldn’t matter. Time will tell!
And thanks, mum is looking well and has had a good day.
Thank you Karen for my beautiful poppy quilt – I love it!!! As always your work looks much better ‘for real’ than in a photo – I so wish all of you could see Karen’s work close at hand, it would be a real treat for you! Thank you to the kind people who have sent good wishes for my birthday – very much appreciated.
welcome 🙂 xx
Happy Birthday Mum! How blessed you are to have such a wonderful artist daughter!
your pieces remind of the countryside… peace and beauty.
your mom and my 3rd son share a birth anniversary 🙂
happy birthday karen’s mum!

MORE beautiful poppies… I love the integration of painted scraps… works so well here.
Lovely! Belated happy birthday to your mum!

You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
