Blackwork Angel

Not much to show today! I am still waiting for the cushion pad I ordered to arrive so I can complete my cushion for Mom. Hopefully that will be here soon and I can post a completed picture at the weekend.
I have been busy stitching on my Family Tree but will also update you with that over the weekend. I was very tired last night and didn't do as much as I had hoped but I have been enjoying working on the Tree again this week.
At Stitching Club tonight I decided to do another Blackwork piece to match my Christmas Tree I stitched last week. Here she is -

I have enjoyed these little pieces, I may do the bell next!!! They are nice and quick to complete also!

I should have plenty of time over the weekend to stitch as Stuart is away from home, it is the British American Football finals in Doncaster that his team - Redditch Arrows - are playing in. I am taking my mom and the girls to see The Nutcracker Ballet, much more exciting!!!!

Thankyou so much for checking out that chart for me. It is a little'twee' for what I wanted, but that site is great. I'll keep checking there for other charts before dipping into my purse. Many thanks again!

The blackwork angel is cute. How are you going to finish it?

Have a good time at the ballet, it's wonderful. When I was younger, I put on a show for my parents "showcasing" my skills as a ballerina in the Nutcracker. hehe!
