Angel progress: flowers and fleece
With that much accomplished, it was time to attack the flowers in the garlands in the angel's hair and around the lamb's neck. More French knots! This time I used Vineyard Silk Classic Bright White, Peppermint and Berry. While the same stitch was used for the flowers and the lamb's coat, the choice of thread creates a different look for each. The sheen of the silk thread gives vibrancy to the flowers, while the Medici wool gives the lamb's coat a matte appearance.
I'm now a little more than half-way done with this canvas. Everything stitched to date has used threads from my stash, but I'm slowly but surely running out!
