Smyrna Cross

Today I've been working on the wording for Angel In Your Heart and thought I'd take a break to update my blog. The Angel has her wings and eyes now...

Angel In Your Heart - 17 February 2010

For her wings I've used WDW Snowflake which has the softest of pink running through it. I've also used this thread for her legs.


The wings are outlined with cross stitches then filled in with Smyrna crosses. A really lovely effect which makes a feature of them. This is probably my favourite part of the design.


Well, I better get back to it. Thank you all for your compliments on my thread choices. For some reason this design has been easy to choose a different conversion. I've even done the words in a variegated thread. More about it next time.
