These are the ornaments I have stitched and finished since my last blog post. Three little teddies (the chart is a very old DMC freebie that I can no longer find on their website) for three babies who will be celebrating their first Christmasses this year.
And, stitched from another free on-line chart, the 1997 Christmas Angel from L& L (which is still available free on the TIAG website). I decided to frame it in a purchased frame, and it will be a Christmas gift for an angel-loving friend.
I was having trouble stitching, so decided to tidy up my stash. Everything was going well till I got to my bead box. I was I intending just to sort out the beads, but the first thing I pulled out of my (big) storage box was a bag of beads asking to be made into angel bodies.
And here are the 19 completed beaded angels:
The red ones in the top pic are the biggest - 11 cm (a bit over 4") long, and the smallest ones, measuring just under 4cm (about 1.6") long are in the bottom pic. I do love making beaded angels. I will probably keep them for my own hand-crafted Christmas tree.
