Update on Poppies

I like how this is turning out. I think my friend will too. Its fun to stitch and the colors are very bold. I also like the cotton yarn. The picture on the kit doesn't really do it justice.

This is an oldie but goodie stitch guide that is also from the 70s. It gives great descriptions.

And I also spent part of the day reading this issue of Dog Fancy. I love this magazine.

  1. Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy are awesome, Sarah Beth. Glad you're enjoying it. And the poppies are going to be soooooo dramatic. Great colors.

  2. What a neat little embroidery book!

  3. Your poppies piece is coming along beautifully! I just love finding "vintage" or older books on stitching!

    1. I do too. I like to see the progress of how cross stitch designs have changed.

  4. I have some crewel kits in my stash that I should try some day. I love the bright poppies!
