Poppy Cross Stitch Update

After the non-stitching activity of the last few days, I am pleased with what I have been able to accomplish today. The progress on this piece is really obvious as I have now been able to stitch a poppy flower.

All the cross stitching is complete on this flower. The gap in the middle is for french knots and beads. I need to get some beads for this too, something I had forgotten! This photo shows the whole of the middle section. Left to do are the french knots, beading and the back stitch. So good to think I am almost a third of the way through the whole project.
Tomorrow should be the start of a new SAL. I am hoping I shall get home with enough time and inclination to get started.
