the birds are chirping - spring has arrived..

... and an angel has appeared - with no eyes, no matter everyone will get their eyes at the end as they are all french knots and I'm too lazy to do them one by one.  As you can see, more border has been done and another flower and of course the angel.  Hopefully my threads will arrive today so I can start working on some flower stems, fill in those leaves and continue on with that border.


 Leave you a photo of some beautiful flowers I bought - wish I could say I picked these from my garden :{
Behind the flowers you can see a cross stitch kit from Anchor?  from when I started cross stitching 3 years ago.


Thankyou everyone for the lovely comments, I do so enjoy reading them.
