Cheerful Poppies

I've enjoyed getting back to this project, especially as it seems to be stitching up quite quickly.

Last night, the kitten stopped me from stitching as he kept chasing the threads. He had his claws out so the only option was to put it away. This meant the candles weren't needed!

All the stems have now been completed and there only the two poppy flowers to stitch. I am hoping the cross stitch will be finished by the weekend ready to add the beads and french knots.
