Framed Angel!


I really loved the pillow I made and I wanted to try it in a new version. I enlarged the pattern so I could do the angel in wool. I also liked the idea of making it into a framed piece, so it is just the right size to fit in an 8" x 10" frame. I decided to have a little fun and used a floral trim around her head and the addition of lace and buttons adds a fun touch. After I finished it, I antiqued it, using more on the rose trim to tone down the bright pink shades.

The design is by Primitive Blessings and can be found under stitchery patterns. It was quick to make up and a fun project to do for yourself or as a gift. I still have to finish my new pattern, so hopefully it will be ready on friday.

The frame is just a cheap black one, I need to go through my craft supplies and organize my frames to see what else I have.

The wool really makes the angel stand out... i think it looks nicer framed (rather than a pillow)... you are ROCKIN'! :-)
