Throwback Thursday

It's time for another Throwback Thursday.  These are some poppies I made for my best friend at the last shop I worked at.  Don loves poppies; they are his favorite flower.  I wanted to do something special for him so I found this kit from Maia and knew I had to make it for him.  Now I know some stitchers will never even think about using a kit but honestly this was a quality one.  It did come with aida cloth but it was a really nice fabric and since I am basically cheap  thrifty, I couldn't see not using it.  It also had Anchor thread which I absolutely love using.  I did have it framed for Don and he loved it.  It's really nice giving stitching to someone who really appreciates it.

Very pretty, and from the photo you can't even tell it was stitched on Aida

What a lovely kit and the beads look so good in the centers! It must be nice to have a guy who knows his flowers haha. Mine can tell you if something might be a plant. ;)
