Making Monday

My friend Natalie has declared today a day for writing about something we have made.

And over the last week I have knitted this hanging for my Mum.

Jane Thornley challenged us to 'Knit a masterpiece' using a painting as a starting point. She set us off using one of Monet's waterlily paintings to knit a shawl.

But my Mum and I both love Les Coquelicots and knitting lends itself to impressionism, and this is the result.

Squint and step back from the screen and the source of inspiration is there.

The more I look at this the more beautiful I find it. Lovely work.

Before I saw your mention of "Les Coquelicots" I looked at your panel and thought "That looks like the banks of poppies in the Monet painting". So you have indeed given me an Impression!

It's lovely.
