Poppy Field

After a little perseverance, Poppy Field is done.  Although it wasn't finished before the boys came home, it was finished the evening they got back.  There was some back stitching detail to do, mainly on the flowers and the building.

This design was by Lesley Teare and came from Issue 33 of Cross Stitch Gold.  Now I need to work out a way to finish it, but in the meantime, it shall join the waiting pile.

I've started a few other small projects, but need to get supplies to finish them.  Hopefully, I'll get the chance to do some shopping later in the week.

Can I mail you some of my UFO's? I never knew anybody else who could stitch so fast and yet so beautifully! Hey guess what - I joined the club (no, not THAT one). I joined Leila's Skill Builder Sampler group and have done the first two blocks. Go see!
