Summer-Like Weather Summer Stitch

Well, it's time to get working on another in the series.
I've kitted up Cottage Garden Samplings "August's Poppy".
Bright bright colors on this one - it should be fun. 

The weather the past few days has seemed almost summer-like too. I've been outside without a coat or sweater or tights - just a summery polo dress.  The cats and I have been loving it.

The delphiniums were a little 'fiddly' to stitch, but it was worth it as they turned out very life-like. This series continues to delight me month after month!

Series Sunday Progress

What with one thing and another (life) I haven't worked on Cottage Garden Sampling's "July's Delphinium" for a couple of weeks. Sunday evening's Oscar telecast provided the perfect opportunity to get back on track.  I managed to stitch one leaf and a stock of delphinium.

Padma and Parvati used the evening to map out a new Synchronized Sleeping routine. Who spent the evening more wisely?
