It has been a while since I've posted and as today is completion of the Poppies piece here's a snapshot to celebrate.   Sorry but I can't show you the finished product as its a gift for a friend who reads this blog so I don't want to spoil the surprise!

This afternoon I sorted out two unfinished pieces and will make a determined effort to get at least one of those finished by the end of this month.   You see, next year I plan on stitching the World Sampler that was in The Gift of Stitching a couple of years ago and my conscience says that I need to get my UFO's completed before I start that as it will be a mammoth project.   Fortunately I have only three UFO's and one piece of Ukranian Whitework I am currently working on for a Christmas gift so if I put my foot down and speed up I should be able to be UFO free by the end of the year.   Well, as they say "dreams are free"!!

Hope all is well with you and that your weather is a great deal better than the stormy conditions we have at present.   I'm off now to roast chicken dinner followed by an evening in the company of Inspector Barnaby and his Midsomer Murders.

Goodbye all.


  1. I love your red poppies! The colours are so vibrant. Only having 3 UFOs is quite an accomplishment in itself! Best of luck with finishing those off before the new year. :)
