Cross Stitch Poppies

These lovely poppies were another small cross stitch magazine cover gift I've recently purchased.  I didn't like the small flimsy card that was in the kit, so I make a dark green frame for the poppies and added a sentiment below.

I enjoyed stitching these poppies and have saved the pattern to use again - I think they would look lovely stitched in shades of red too.

Hi Kath, That's a lovely cheery card.

Hope you have had a nice day. Sue

HI Kath

Beautiful cross stitching again .. .. I love the colours very much and the added sentiment is the perfect finishing touch.

I'm not surprised you kept the pattern. It looks like it will come in very useful for you.

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

This is so lovely the green card sets the flowers off beautifully. I used to regularly make cross stitched cards but haven't done it for a long time now. Perhaps I will have to change that. Love your April CCC card too xx
