Elizabeth--the finale

Take four different Kreinik braids, add an assortment of DMC floss and a smidgen of Burmilana--all from my stash--and the result is a finished Elizabeth angel!

The center panel medallions were stitched in basketweave with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002V.  The stylized flowers were worked in a satin stitch with a cross stitch of Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #003HL in the center.

The hem of the dress was stitched in basketweave with accents of silver metallic tent stitches and red metallic cross stitches.

There's another angel in the magic box that my stitching friend sent me--another project!

She's very lovely I love the blues. And she will need a friend although she has your lovely angels to keep her company too.

A great finish! Is a group of angels called a chorus?

How about "a little bit of heaven," Mary Agnes?
