Poppy Brooch as of 23.11.11 - COMPLETE

One of the secret projects I mentioned I was working on last time was a poppy brooch from Issue 246 of Cross Stitcher Magazine.  My sister had seen the brooch and mentioned she would like to stitch it at some point and as she is always making things for me and my son I thought I would make it for her.  The magazine said to stitch it on red felt using waste canvas but I chose to stitch it on plastic canvas instead which I think has worked really well.  I then stitched red felt to the back and attached a brooch pin.  My sister was over the moon with it when I gave it to her which I was pleased about as I was a bit worried that she had wanted to actually stitch it herself.  Anyway less words here's the pictures.





I'm making good progress on one of my other secret projects and have stitched about 10% of it.  It is for an event that is happening in 2013 which I can't go into much detail about without giving away the secret.  So unfortunately there won't be any photos of this project for a long while.  I am well on track though to get it finished in plenty of time which I am happy about.

I'm going to be starting on Inspire next which is a new start that I just cannot wait to get to.  I made myself work on the secret project this week so I could keep on track but I've been itching to start Inspire.

I've also signed up for the HAED BB 2012 SAL.  I chose one of the SKs, I think it is called Enchanted Doorway - it's a picture of a lady with a dragon on her shoulder and I'm looking forward to receiving the information about that in due course.
