I've been busy stitching more of my Blackwork Angels and have completed 6 altogether this year.
|The Prairie Schooler - Blackwork Angels.|
I have also started to stitch a lovely little Margaret Sherry 'Cat in a Teacup', which is the free cover kit, just out in "Cross Stitch Card Shop" Issue No. 82.

It's been very cold and wet at the moment. But we did have some lovely sun sets the other night and my camera came out to catch the moment.
Last Saturday I went out walking with my friends. The sun was out and there was blue sky. The ground was hard and crisp as we had a frost that morning. Here are a few photo's I took of our walk at Whirlow.

The contrast of the day was amazing. Ice on the pond for the ducks, and then flowers still in bloom, like the gorse bush and rhododendron. The temperature dropped suddenly as we entered a lower part of the valley and you could see the frost all around. It was good to get out of the house and see it all.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway. Here is the link. Closes on 17 February 2012.
Until next time, Happy Stitching
