Poppies

I grew up in Skopje, Macedonia on the fourth floor of an apartment tower.  From the balcony you could see a big field where wheat was planted.  In May/June the field will be covered in poppies.  Beautiful red poppies, a million of them.  When it was windy the poppies will dance in waves, back and forth.  I loved to watch the red waves on windy days.

So as I’ve been learning to hand embroider trying to depict the red poppy field was a good idea.  And this is what came out of my embroidery practice.
