Spring Angel's Halo

My Spring Angel has her halo. Now I am working on the outline of her wings. After that I think the flowers are next or maybe the border. The outline of the wings will help me get to the border without making a mistake. I always leave the white of the wings for last so that it doesn't get dirty.
She is stitching up pretty quickly.

I think I will sit with a new favorite tea and spend some time working on her on this Valentine's Day. 
The tea was a Christmas gift and I have to admit it is a really tasty Earl Grey.

Hubby and I are staying home for Valentine's Day. Both of our birthdays are in February so we usually have a quiet Valentine's Day. We have had a few unfortunate V-day dining experiences so we avoid the added expense and the crowds now. We enjoyed a dinner out with our daughter (who was visiting from Boston) on Friday and celebrated Hubby's birthday yesterday.

Wouldn't this be a great birthday present for me if I won? 
Check out this floss giveaway from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. All you need to do is pick your favorite color set to be entered.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. On Monday I will join the Stitchery Link Party over at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your angel is looking very cute, love your Valentine pillow on your header too! We usually have a quiet Valentine too as it's not long to out Wedding Anniversary and it doesn't seem 2 minutes since Christmas :-)
