With each and every update, I love this angel's curls more and more. They bring such personality to the piece. I'm happy to see more updates.

Giving the Passion Flower Angel a break for a while. I am making good progress on Blackbird Designs America--stitched on Lakeside Linen 40 count Homespun. I only need to finish the border now

You stitched it beautifully. I like the way the flag hangs, with all the shadings.

I really like this design. I am another one that appreciates the shading and how the flag hangs beautifully. I am always amazed at the way designers are able to capture the feel of something such as a flag hanging.

Thank you for all of the positive replies!! It really does help. America is finished, and I do love how it turned out--better than I expected since I am not used to stitching on 40 count linen. Here is how it looks

And here is my progress on the Passion Flower Angel---she will look so much better when the back stitching is done

Congratulations on the America finish. It's got such a quaint folksy feel to it. I would love having this up in my house.

I continue to love the adorable curls of your angel with each and every update. She is so beautiful and sweet. I am looking forward to seeing more updates of her.
