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.

Progress pic - Angel of Hope

I'm still having fun with my angel. I've been working on her for 2 and a half weeks now - since June 3. "Just" one wing and the skirt to stitch now - and the harp which will replace the unstitched areas on her bodice. I've decided to use gold beads instead of cross stitches for the frame of the harp, and also for the gold edging on her dress. I had a visit to the lns the other day and bought Mill Hill seed beads in gold, two shades of plum, and three shades of green. I'm also replacing the floral trim on the flounce of the dress, and in her hair, with beads. I thought she needed some beads because she'll be hanging near the Angel of Love, who is very heavily beaded.

The next pic you see will have the wing stitched.

Beautiful stitching. I have the very same angel hanging above our bed. Although I made some changes to the dress to "fix" up the broken part.
Can't wait to see more of yours. I think the golden beads will look fantastic.
