It's That Time


Well, it's that time of the week. You know what I mean. It's time to show my updated poppies. I was able to work on them every day this past week including Saturday (which is a rarity for me). The more I stitch on them, the more I want to stitch them. I just love the colors in them. They look so lifelike and real. I finally showed them to Don earlier in the week and he loved it. Said they were just what he was wanting.
I've also made some progress on the Lizzie Kate. I find myself being more and more drawn to the retro 60"s look. Maybe it harkins back to a time when life was simpler and I didn't have so many things to juggle. When I was younger, my only responsiblities were doing well in school and a few chores around the house. My friends and I would spend hours playing outdoors. It was an easier way of life. That's what this Lizzie Kate reminds me of. This one is mine. It's not going anywhere!
