Poppies

I couldn't sleep so figured rather than lying in bed waiting for the alarm to go off I'd just get up and do some blogging instead.
Fanfare please ... yep your eyes are not deceiving you I actually finished a stitching project!!!

It's taken me ages as I still am struggling to find the enthusiasm for stitching that I had before but I'm sure it will come back eventually. Anyway I got there in the end. The stitching on the petals is not as free as I would have liked but I guess embroidery is like anything else, practise makes perfect and I haven't done much lately so have gotten a bit rusty.
I couldn't do a post about poppies without including a couple of snaps that I took of some of the wild road side poppies which have been glorious this year, and, are what inspired me to pick up the needle and start stitching on this kit in the first place.
