Stitchgasm! – Poesie Grenadine’s Celia Johnson Blackwork

Another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch!

I’ve been following the progress of Kate Rolison’s (A.K.A. Poesie Grenadine) blackwork portrait of Celia Johnson from Brief Encounter. Now that it is finished it is absolutely flawless!

There’s even a snap of the back!
