I decided to start Poppy while waiting for a bead shipment to arrive for Evening Primrose. I can’t progress any further until I get those beads. Which reminds me, I should follow up with the store in case they forgot to call me or lost my number.
So far, I’m enjoying stitching Poppy. I really do believe that having a fabric with a nice texture helps. Ahem, I’m talking to you Harmony. I’ve read some comments online about not stitching on anything else after having stitched on Jobelan. I can understand why.
I also get a little excited about working on a fresh piece of hand-dyed fabric. I love watching the design come to life. A piece of art on a piece of art.
I try to stitch as much as I can during the evenings. I get in anywhere from two to three hours. On the weekends, that’s almost doubled.
Here’s what I have so far:
My progress should actually be eight days’ worth, but I forgot to snap pictures on two occasions.
I am stitching Poppy on Hand-Dyed Fabric by Stephanie, hand-dyed, “Abyss” 32-ct Jobelan, 2 over 2.
