Creative Poppy "Colors I Love" Biscornu

I stitched the "Colors I Love : Deep Blue Collection" Biscornu from Creative Poppy in RED.   It was a wonderful stitch - The pattern is pretty quick to complete but contains enough design elements to be gorgeous when finished - Great combination if you ask me
Take a look:

Poppy Paperweight

This is a design by Faby Reilly found at Creative Poppy Patterns.  It is presented with several pages when purchased due to the detail work.  I have posted photos as this piece progresses so you can see the various stages of work.  This was very fun to stitch - Great fun to see the progression of detail within the design.

Cross Stitching and
Back Stitching Added to One Poppy:
Isn't it wonderful to see the difference just a few threads make in the detail :)

 
Spider Web Flowers Added:



You'll have to wait until next week to see the next stage and the finish :)
Have you guessed what it will be?

Happy Stitching :)
