Angel progress: a leonine body

There's a lot of Petite Very Velvet in this lion!  Not too surprising, since he measures nine inches from stem to stern and four inches at his highest point.

It took a full week of stitching to reach this point, including a stint during the blizzard last weekend when the power was out for 45 hours.  Then I sat by the window to take advantage of my only light source, a blanket wrapped around my lap since there was no heat.  What we stitchers do for love!

Time now to give this noble lion a garland of flowers and restore his claws.
