Poppy Patchwork


My little bit of this big World

Almost

Just a few more stitches to be done
4 snowflakes and the wire 
 The second tree is done, you won't notice but I had to unpick the top of the tree, star, it was one row to low, I could have gotten away with it, but I knew it was wrong. I was pleased I got so much done,
I'm not taking this to my brothers house, I have my new SAL and Santa's to stitch if I get time.
I finished the back panel of my patchwork cushion yesterday afternoon, I now want to decorate the five squares, so I am having time out to decide what to use. The plain squares make it look very different. I still have no idea for the outside panels, I can't even decide if the panels should be plain of patterned.
In an hour I will start the long drive to Somerset, it takes between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the traffic, I am taking the longer route, using motorways, I really don't want to be driving down the country lanes, nice in the summer, but at best mucky at this time of year.

Gorgeous stitching :-D the detail is stunning on it. I love the cushion as well.

Skaters is looking lovely, so pretty. Do you use a snap frame rather than a hoop for cross stitch? Have a safe journey.

Safe journey, have a lovely time.
The cushion looks great.

Love your Skating stitch, it's very sweet and the colours are pretty too.
You've done well with your patchwork and I think sometimes it's the right thing to just sit back and think a bit before deciding the final finish and pattern.
Mucky weather here too and set in for the next 24 hours so hope your journey is problem free.
Take Care xxx
