It's been a while since you heard from Poppy, but in the last couple of weeks we have released two new patterns; one is
Home of the Brave, and is stitched on 28ct Natural Light linen, courtesy of Wichelt Imports. It uses a couple of DMC colors and one Magnolia Blossom from Classic Colorworks. It is a fairly quick to stitch pattern. I spent two days finishing my model. The frame is by Huneywood and the number is 957. I have a sister-in-law who has a wall full of Americana patterns which is quite impressive.. She has a son who served in the military and I think that keeps her going with the Americana theme.
The other one is titled “Tis The Season When” and is stitched on Wichelt's 28ct. Royal Classic Christmas Blue and is being mailed to Hoffman and Norden Crafts tomorrow . The frame is another Huneywood, # PB817 and uses Magnolia Blossom and Desert Mesquite by Classic Colorworks and Strawn, Curry, Brick, Lancaster Red Mocha and Cocoa from Weeks Dye Works along with several DMC colors. I really enjoyed designing and stitching this model as I have always liked stitching houses and Christmas..
My grandson is getting married in August and he requested that I stitch for them the same Christmas Sampler I stitched for my daughter and her husband 30 years ago. I really was pleasantly surprised that he wanted a stitchery piece and it only took me 10 minutes to find the pattern. I think that is pretty good after 30 years.
Once again, I thank each and every one of you for your friendship and business and my next pattern to come will be St. Nicholas (I hope)
Keep on stitching,

It has been a while since we have sent out a newsletter but with the Nashville market coming soon and want to let you know what is new from Poppy Kreations.
Hoffman will have our two new patterns available for you in Nashville. The first one is titled Once Upon a Memoryy and is honoring all our mothers whether they are in heaven or still with us. This pattern is stitched on 28ct. Cameo Peach Jobelan courtesy of Wichelt Imports. I have many fond memories as a child and as an adult and also my two grandmothers, who are no longer with me, were so special.
This could make a nice “Mother’s Day” gift.
The other pattern is Grandkids and is also stitched on Cameo Peach Jobelan. This pattern can be adjusted for more names of grandchildren, by adding more names and using a larger piece of fabric.
My oldest grandchild is getting married this August and I have been stitching the Christmas picture I stitched for my daughter and her husband 29 years ago and was surprised I could still find the pattern. I will now have to stitch another Christmas stocking for her. I have been looking for the right one for a couple of months - may have to design one myself.
We also released two new patterns in January Forever Memory and Winter Welcome--- Hoffman and Norden Crafts already have them in stock.
Thanks to everyone for supporting the market and know how exciting this can be. Once again, I do appreciate your friendship and business and Keep on stitching, Feel free to check other patterns on our Web site: www.poppykreations.com--also email me regarding any questions at:JnMoore100@aol.com

Hope you are all having a great Christmas stitching season in your shops. I still have a couple of stitching items that I need to do for presents.
One is hugs sampler for my daughter that I have been stitching on for 8 years and probably have about three more hours and it will be done. When she picked it out, I told her I didn't know how long it would take me to stitch it because of Poppy Kreations designs, but it did take longer than I expected. It will be a nice heirloom for the family.
Poppy Kreations has one last new Christmas pattern called Christmas Treasures . It is a Christmas tree with lots of stitched ornaments that we had on our family tree when I was a child . The Christmas season at our house was a very happy occasion as my mom and dad each had eight siblings, and we celebrated with most of them every year at different places. I have lots of cousins who I enjoyed being around also.
The pattern and is stitched on 30ct. Natural brown linen courtesy of Wichelt Imports. It uses Cherry Wine by GAST, Snowball from Classic Colorworks, and Baked Apple, Mocha, Hunter and Bright Leaf from Weeks Dye Works. Tiny red buttons are stitched on the tree limbs but other embellishments could be used... My home kind of looks like Christmas all year, as I have several Christmas designs I leave up all year, plus a large Printer's Tray with 100 miniature Santas.
The pattern is being shipped to Hoffman and Norden Crafts this week so they should have them in stock soon.
I have several other designs in progress that will be out (hopefully) in 2017.
Have a great holiday season and I really appreciate your business and friendship!!
As always, kept on stitching,
Joan, Poppy Kreations
