Crosses 8/25 motif challenge and Poppy field


The weather forecast said today would be the best day,   ha ha,  its rained and been showers and black clouds all day,  so much for sunshine and a better day.  Who makes up these weather forecasts,   more rain tomorrow and Tuesday,  not looking any further.
Today this post seems to have put itself together,  these two coloured crosses are  from the book Pattern Collection by Mary Konior.  I have put Lizbeth Purple Splendor in the middle in the top one and the Flora Green in the middle of the other one with Lizbeth white on the outside,  all threads were no 20.
I do like this pattern and its easy to do.  I feel this pattern lends itself to two colours.

Yesterday was Armed Forces Day and I managed to get a photo of the corn field just outside the village where we live,   its full of red poppies,  from a distance its red,  this is a closer picture which I took on my mobile,  I had another one but the blue tooth wont let me transfer it onto the computer,  when I can I will show,  Vernon took the picture standing on the door rim over the field.   Its a long time since I saw a field of corn with poppies in and I had to share with you,

As I say this post seems to have put its self together,   the crosses are no 8 of the 25 Motif challenge.
Until we meet again take care, keep dry, and for my American reads I hope you stay safe in the heat,  could you send a bit over to us in exchange for some rain.
