Arch for Cathy

This is the arch I made for Cathy. November is a time of remeberance here in England. The majority of people can be seen wearing poppies bought from the British Legion to help them raise much needed funds. The money enables them to help servicemen, ex servicemen and their families in anyway they can. I decided as Cathy had floral on her list that I would do poppies for her. I used various sheer fabrics layered up onto a felt backing. The centres of the poppies were done on the embellisher. I decided to leave the edges free.

Hi there, having a coffee and doughnut break, accompanied by a little blog catch up!

Your poppies are lovely - quite serene.
