Just in time for Christmas

My angel has earned her wings!  It took the better part of a cone--the equivalent of five spools--of Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #032 to finish filling in the layers of wings with the Nobuko stitch.

To celebrate, I worked the leaves in the garland around her hair in a satin stitch with two different shades of green Impressions.  I won't be stitching the flowers until much later so they don't get in my way.

Moving on to the lion, I stitched his ears and nose with pink Petite Very Velvet. More white Medici was used in basketweave for the center of his ears and in an encroaching gobelin stitch for his muzzle.  I finished off his mouth in tent stitches with DMC floss #310.

Wishing all of my readers much peace in their kingdoms, wherever they may be!
