In a design of poppy flowers, a bud, and leaves along with a chickadee and inchworm, detached elements of an increasing complexity are taught.

intstumpworkThe detached poppy flowers are made with needlelace stitches on a frame of wire then attached to the ground fabric. Some leaves and bird parts form other detached elements that are stitched in position on surface stitched details.
