Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

My Angel has a wing

I've stitched many an angel and fairy in my day (being both a Christmas fanatic and the proud Aunt of 6 girls), but never have I stitched such a large angel wing. This one is over 32 cm (about 13 inches) long. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it looks much prettier in real life.

My plan was to stitch on the Angel for half the week and HAED Jolly Old Fellow for the other half of each week. So far, that's just not happening. I just can't put the Angel away yet. I'll stitch on her for the next week, and then decide what to do with the two projects. The thought that the Angel will be finished this year keeps flitting through my head. I'd like to get her to the framer by the beginning of September, to ensure I will get her back early November at the latest. My framer is excellent, but works to his own schedule, and speed isn't his best thing.

So, there's every chance I will stitch on the Angel till she's finished, then go back to JOF. So much for my first rotation!
