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.

Half an Angel

My Angel is half-finished. So far she measures a bit over 35 cm (14 inches), and I've estimated that the finished Angel will be around 65 cm (26 inches) long. I usually have no trouble working out the size of my projects - it's the uneven weave of the linen I'm using that is the problem here. I've not come across this before, but though the threads are evenly spaced horizontally, there is a marked variation in the thread spacing vertically. Very odd. But it seems to be working out OK. Luckily, I wanted an imposing Angel to hang on a very high wall, so I'm getting what I wanted! I need to get back to her - I still have a lot of stitching to do, and I really do want to get her to the framer at the end of this month.
