Another angel finished

This little angel is ready to make the trip to the finisher with her friend Elizabeth!

Her robe was finished in basketweave with DMC floss #3753 and the folds with DMC floss #3752.

I wanted to work the border at the hem differently, but that was not to be since the stylized flowers painted on the canvas refused to be covered with the lighter blue thread.  So  I stuck with the original design, stitching the flowers with DMC floss #931 to match the Petite Very Velvet of the center panel and adding Smyrna cross centers with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #3221.  Finally, I added more Smyrna crosses on top of the Petite Very velvet in the center panel to tie the design elements together.

My goal in stitching this angel was to make her look different from Elizabeth, and by changing some of the design elements, I think I've succeeded!

She turned out to be her own person--quite pretty.
