Poppy Progress!

This is my progress on Lanarte's Poppy. I didn't seem to get an awful lot of time during the week to sit down and stitch so stitched on this Saturday (not much) and Sunday when it felt like I had made much more progress. This meant that I didn't touch my LHN Ornie so will have to crack on with it next weekend before the next on comes out.

I have been thinking about the months with five weeks in it. As my rotation is a four week rotation I was thinking about what I could do in week five and I have to say I was VERY tempted to have a new start and just work on it when there was a five week month but decided that I would work on my Lanarte Poppy for the extra week as it missed out for such a long time. Surprising what pops into your mind when your stitching lol!

I have ordered some linen (I think) in 28 ct Summer Khaki and Ice Blue. I brought the Summer Khaki so that my Lizzie Kate christmas designs are all on the same fabric (I think I may have an idea how these could be framed together) and the ice blue is for the LHN Ornie "He's a flake" and a couple of other snowmen I have in my stash to do.

Until next time, happy stitching.

Great progress on your poppy! Good luck with the rotation, they don't seem to work for me, so I really admire people who can do them :)
