Update & Flowers

I am really pleased with the progress on this my first ever large blackwork project. The design is on an anchor leaflet and is called Simply Blackwork, by Jill Carter-Nixon. Its done in black perle #12 and gold. The bits you see are the centre of the house, which still needs some backstitching to define it, and some of the bushes/flower beds.
On a different note, when my aunt was visiting last week she bought me some flowers. They are opening up now and they are just so beautiful I had to share them with you.

Tomorrow is UFO day, so tomorrow evening I will be back with Celtic Spring.

Thanks to all those who visit and those who leave me comments, they are much appreciated.

I love the progress on the Blackwork House - it looks so wonderful. Oh, and the flowers, beautiful too. I´m writing down a rotation using your advice - will be posting it on my blog when I return from my holiday. Thanks again for the information on how you do it.

All the best,
