the Home Stretch


I can't believe that I'm almost done with the poppies. I had a marathon stitching session today and finished the third large poppy. Now all that remains to stitch is the stem and the final bud and stem. It feels like I've been stitching on them forever. At the same time, it seems like I just started them. It's been a while since I enjoyed stitching anything as much as I've enjoyed stitching on them. Maybe part of that is because I know how much Don will love them. It's so much easier to stitch something when you know it will be appreciated.

They look so beautiful.
You are doing an awesome job on them.

I know a lot of times it is the way the color pops off the canvas that drives me to love stitching a piece.

Such a vibrant colour - I'll have to drag my poppy chart out - nowhere near as detailed as yours!!
Brilliant. It's been fun watching it grow.
