TIF July

This is my piece for the July TIF Challenge. The Challenge for July was What is it to be at the half way mark?

In June I turned 40. It's been great so far but I do feel like I'm at a half way mark. Not that you can ever know about these things but statistically... Anyway, to celebrate I went away for a few days. I have already shown you a lot of pics from the trip in previous posts. One of the many beautiful things I saw was poppy fields. That's the inspiration for this embroidery.

Size 28cm x 32cm

I'm getting ready for the Symposium. It starts on Tuesday next week. There will be plenty of pics. Promise!

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I`m crazy about poppies. I think they are one of the most beautiful flowers. So fragile!

I am a bit slow in my reading but wanted to say how lovely your piece is and that I found although my 40s was good so far my 50s are better!
