Lest we forget progress

I have spent my stitching time this week working on "Lest we forget", "Family Tree" and "3D Cottage".
Here is the progress on Lest we forget - the poppy is looking lovely. At first I was going to change the one colour as it is orange on the outer edge more than red. But now it is coming together I like the colour combination.


I forgot to take a photo of my Cottage, but I have finished the first gable end and will start a side wall this weekend. On my Family Tree I am still working on the children in front of the Mom. I will update you on this on my next post.
Just thought I'd show you a little extra one I stitched that I'll make into a card and possibly sell on Ebay. It is really sweet and the design would work for a new baby card too. Talking of new babies we have another one due in the family next year.... so more stitching. My cousin and his wife announced they were expecting their second child in May '09. I didn't do anything for their first child as I was going through a non stitching phase at the time, so I will only do a little card this time.
I have been to our local churches Christmas fete this morning. Me and my mom had a nice cup of coffee and a mince pie for £1..... and I bought a red fabric bag for £1.50 that I am going to put a piece of stitching on at some point in the future. This afternoon I am off to the garden centre to get some bird food and winter pansies as I have a new planter and bird feeder that is waiting to be filled up!!
Hope you all have a good weekend....

I love the baby design!!!! That is so cute!!!!
really pretty stitching, the poppies are coming along a treat!
I know what you mean totally about "Non-stitching" phases! I'm totally absorbed in it for months, then got off it and leave it fOR months and start other phases like letter writing or reading!
