Friday Night Sew In

This month, there were no unexpected happenings, so I could participate in Friday Night Sew In with no problems.  I decided to work on the latest cross stitch I'm doing, I really would like to get this finished before the boys come home, but I think that might be a little over ambitious. 

The design comes from an old Cross Stitch Gold Magazine.  I chose to do it, as I love poppies.  I don't have anywhere to put them in the garden, so I'll just have to make do with stitching them.

This is where I was when I started on this yesterday.  The bottom line is the bottom of the picture, the chart for that portion is over the page, so that will be started once I've finished the left side.
And this is where I was when I went to bed.  Slowly, but surely, the space is getting filled in.  I shall just keep doing it bit by bit every day.

I love poppies too. I've seen a few fabulous cross stitched poppies pictures in exhibitions, but none like yours. It will be beautiful!
