While not the first month of the year, ‘July – Poppies & Bees’, is the first pattern in a new series of designs in the Damask Calendar series.
July is a tangerine colored month in my mind (if you live in the southern hemisphere that might not be the same for you) and there aren’t many July flowers I love more than a poppy with their silky petals and happy demeanor.
Hope you will ‘feel’ July in this design! All stitches are cross stitch using two threads on 16 count Aida cloth in the Assisi style of stitching only the background.
Stitch count – 162 X 135
