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.
