Ladybird Poppy - cross stitch flower pattern
A counted cross stitch pattern of a ladybird poppy, based on a photograph taken in my own garden. With deep reds and balck spots, ladybird poppies add a touch of dramatic colour to a summer garden. This pattern fits neatly into an 8-inch hoop but would also look great as a cushion cover or stretched over canvas.
