Flowers (days 265 & 266)

No chance to blog yesterday as I was visiting my mother-in-law. In the meantime I've managed to finish my orange poppies...
... and make a couple of wild rose brooches (white musk rose and pink briar rose). I've wanted to try a wild rose for ages, and put them to the top of my list when I saw these illustrations in a book called "Shakespeare's Flowers":
It may not come as a huge surprise to learn that I've started work on a honeysuckle design, too!

UPDATE: My poppy design is now available as a sewing pattern! Visit my shop to see all my printable PDF patterns

I love the orange ones! Oh, and the coffee cozy from a couple posts ago was lovely too, those buttons were terrific. :)
