A little face, a hint of color
After filling in the spokes of her halo with DMC floss #3753, I started giving this angel a face. This, too, was worked in floss in basketweave, with cross stitches for the eyes and mouth. Her hairdo was created with two strands of dark brown Burmilana in satin and long stitches.
The sleeves of her robe were also worked in basketweave with DMC floss #3753 and edged with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #3221. I'll fill in the remaining band on the sleeve and fold lines a little later.
