It's Done All the Way!


It's done, it's done, it's done! The poppies are finished! Even the beading. I was off last Friday and just decided to sit down and get to beading. I decided not the wash the poppies. I had such visions of the reds running and I just couldn't take that chance. So I'm going to steam iron it (not on the poppies though) and get the rest of the wrinkles out. It goes against everything I know not to wash them but better safe than sorry. I really love this piece. I'm almost sorry to be giving it away but Don loves poppies so much and he has none that are counted cross stitch. He does have several that are needlepointed but I think mine are much more realistic looking. Don usually lets me pick out his framing for him and I think I'll suggest a light and a dark green mat with a black shiny frame. Now to get back to Lizzie Kate's Time for God.
