Comments: When doing blackwork, I love to do something other than geometric patterns, if I can called it that. I love to stitch animals, people ........... I am sure you can see what I mean.

Angelina was a pure delight to stitch, mostly her dress. The quilt part was a little more tedious to do, but still, not bad at all.

No doubt I will be doing more blackwork in the future. We have some great designers like Marion Scoular, Ilse Altherr and others who have great blackwork designs.
