Skill level:

This small circular design is an ideal introduction to stumpwork embroidery. Worked on a background of ivory satin, this project features a bright yellow Californian Poppy, Eschscholzia californica, with detached petals, a tightly-curled raised flower bud, a padded seed case, and leaves in surface embroidery, and an Early Bumble-Bee, with detached gauzy wings and red-tipped abdomen worked in Turkey knots.

The finished embroidery may be framed or inserted into the base of a small glass paper-weight.
