Tree-topper angel: The finale
Looks like I'll have a tree-topper for an angel tree this year after all--my "back" for Judy Harper's "front" is finished!
There really wasn't that much stitching to do since my last post. I got the DMC floss I needed to finish the skirt, then worked the holly sprig on the left with the Fleur de Paris fine mesh velour. Holly berries were added with French knots of DMC floss #816.
Finally I popped in the date with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002V.
Off she'll go to the finisher this week, with time to spare before she'll be needed for the holidays. I promise to show her in 3-D splendor when she comes home!
