Poppies, poppies, poppies

As I mentioned earlier, I love what a designer can do with just 3 shades of red and 3 shades of green.  But now I have to admit that the beads really add a lot to this design - even more than the backstitching. At this point it's really easy to see the difference the beads and backstitching with one poppy done and the one awaiting its final dressing.



It is finally raining here.   We've needed this rain so badly - mostly for the plants but it's also really nice for a stitching day.  None of us feel obligated to be outside doing something because it is sunny and warm (hot).  I hope the Plains states get rain soon.  The pictures we've seen of drought stricken areas are heartbreaking.

Happy stitching!
