F&S for Jill

I heard from Jill last week that she received my F&S exchange! Yay :D I always get a little nervous about mailing hand-made items, the post offices are notorious for eating mail you know. But anyway, it made it. I stitched her a freebie design from Windy Willows, called Poppy. It was so summery and cute, that I could not resist! She says she likes it, so that is always good news :)
And I found some real poppies from my neighbors yard, couldn't resist a photo...
And here's Jessie hiding in some flowers I cut from my front yard. I love summer!!!!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for the link to the poppies chart. I've loved poppies since I was a girl when we had them growing in our front yard. Those were different than the ones we have out here on the west coast - darker, almost red with black around the center, much larger, and the seed pods were about the size of acorns. We kids would take the seed pods out when they dried up and sprinkle the seeds from them like a salt shaker. It's a wonder the front yard didn't look like a scene from The Wizard of Oz! LOL

Oh lovely poppies, both in squares and the real ones :) We have some simple, small yellow poppies in our garden (Iceland poppy, at least that's what the dictionary told me, LOL) and they looked terrible this morning after a heavy rain... I hope they pick up later!

Oh, I love the summertime too! What cheery flowers; isn't it nice to be able to pick from your own garden to enjoy them inside? I hear it's going to get really hot this weekend, over 100^ here. Stay cool! :)
