Beautiful work. It falls under the category "the work involving angel's patience". I would not be able to do this. The reason why I dont do jig saw puzzles. After that visit to London zoo this lion will forever remind you about it, wont he?
Margaret, your picture involves so much delicate work, but it is worth all the time and effort. I cant help marvelling at how neat your stitching is. The blackwork projects are really perfect. No one could have stitched them better. I am not flattering, I am just recognizing the fact. Happy stitching!
