Poppy Update


Well, they're back. I'm talking about the poppies. It's been a week or so since I posted any update so I thought I'd catch you all up on them. I made some progress on them but not quite as much as I would have liked. But I still think I can finish the last main flower this week and possibly the rest next week. Then I need to try and figure out what I will stitch on next.

When I started cross stitching years ago, I was a one-project-at-a-time gal. I'd start and finish one project before I started another one. Then I started stitching in round robins and needed to work on more than one project at a time. Soon I had so many UFO's that I'm not sure how many I have stuffed away. So now I'm thinking of going back to one at a time. Of course, I know I'll have occasions where I need to start and work on something as a gift but I'm liking the idea of actually finishing something in a reasonable amount of time. So I can either start The Wave or finish the Lizzie Kate I started several months ago. Decisions, decisions.

Poppies are beautiful.

I found my stitching mojo again. Yippee!

Decided to pull out all the UFO's and see which one talked to me.
In doing so I got some stitching done and my little boy got interested enough and is trying to do some too. ;)

I;m sure your beautiful Poppys will be finished soon Bette.
Like you I used to be a one project at a time person but I seem to get into the habit of having two or three on the go at once. Right now I;m not thinking its a good decision as it's giving me a bit of a headache..lol.
