I made these using Cindy's pattern and some embroidery floss I had languishing in a drawer in my sewing room.

The colors were dictated by what I had on hand. :)

This pattern is super-easy and quick to do. I blocked them both because I found I liked the way they looked that way better. The orange one has very long petals in the back because I had a lot of orange, but not too much of the yellow or red! :)

Thanks for the pattern, Cindy!

Very springy! Anybody have a pattern for a poppy? A friend of mine has just decided to do her bedroon over in a poppy theme, and I figured two red petals and a black center can't be too hard to do, can it?
