Poppies for Anzac Day.

As promised, a couple more Poppies, one beautiful one from my exchange partner  Barb, below.
Thank you Barb, I wore it with pride.

Next another one that I made for my own collection. This one is very plain. Another is waiting in the wings for when I can locate the other items, to make it as I had envisioned.

It has been a busy stitching month with the Anzac Ornament exchange & another, monthly One Day Ornament  Challenge. Here is my one day stitch,  a two sided  baggage label, yet to be made into the tag I'd imagined.

' That will happen when I find the correct transparent holder, in which it can be displayed to keep it clean, 
 to be used as a thread holder.  Some years ago I purchased the set of baggage tag, stitched, patterns, from
The Needle's Content. This month's challenge allowed me to start making those tags, this is their "May Floss Tag.

I also stitched two other small pieces one with real wings, a freebie from The Little Stitcher, called Bluebird,

while the next one, has petal wings  & also is a freebie from The Little Stitcher.
They do need to be made up into small ornament pieces, sometime soon.

 I also knitted up a scarf,  from two years ago, which I had knitted twice before. I started on a circular needle which caused me a great deal of frustration so it was undone. Next I knitted it with too many stitches. That too, was undone. This time it is done & won't be undone. It is just waiting to be stitched together, then a photo to follow, so it can be used this winter.

  Thanks for dropping by,


  1. Great One-Day Wonder finish... I love bees! :O)

  2. You've been very busy, Kay! I just love that soon-to-be luggage tag! You'll have no trouble spotting your suitcase with that pretty tag attached--great idea!

    Hope your May is off to a lovely start :)

  3. You have been a busy bee! That is wonderful about doing the one day finishes!
