Angel of Cross Stitch Update

Well, I've reached a landmark on Angel of Cross Stitch - the cross stitching is DONE!!!! Now, of course, here comes the backstitching. At least the backstitching is only a couple of colors - this one had so many confetti stitches and color changes I'm looking forward to one or two colors! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this one come alive!

Thanks for checking out my blog!

Kathy, She looks wonderful, backstitching is boring, but it adds so much detail and definition, just a pity it can be so painful. And wow what a lot of colour changes

OMG this is just beautiful! You spent hours, but the outcome is wonderful. I can't wait to see it with all the back stitching done. (the part I hate). The colors are vibriant and cheery!

Hi Kathy,

Great job. It is beautiful. I have this pattern too. I haven't started. I have it set up along for a few others, that I plan on doing rotations. Can't wait to see more.
