Another finish, this time my Dad's!

Poppy Screen
This is the second panel of the Poppy Screen from Millennia Designs to be completed by my Dad. Holding it up from behind is my Mum! My Dad worked this design from the top down. When he started panel 1, not knowing what he was doing, I asked him if he was doing the title screen from 'The Simpsons'!
This image is enlargable so you can see the panel in all it's glory!

My goodness the screen is stunning. Hope your Dad gets all these compliments because they are certainly well deserved! And I hope by screen that means like a room-divider-screen? I can just imagine that in "the sun room" -- not that I have a sun room, but I might be willing to build one for a screen like that!!.

I started the second poppy screen panel on the 5th March 2008 but only did a few inches and left it alone due to various circumstances until the 6th October 2008. I finished it on 30th April 2009. The canvas for the third panel is now on the frame and the first yarn is draped over it but so far I have not made a stitch. A holiday and the demands of the garden have got in the way.
