Poppies Remembrance Challenge - Lest we Forget
The Diva challenge this week is about poppies and remembrance. I started thinking about my father. My father served in WWII, but also sacrificed for his family every day. He's been gone a long time, but I miss his "one sentence" advice like, "Do the hardest thing first, and then everything will be easy after that."
I relied on some favorite standby tangles for this challenge like tripoli, a crescent moon variation, dex variation, and pendrills. For the poppy I used a dual brush marker. I tried to keep it simple, like my father did.
