Adding some color

With more of the second wing stitched, I took a break from the white and started in on the red areas.  The tip of the angel's hood, her torso and sleeves were stitched with red Petite Very Velvet, with shadows provided by DMC floss #498.

Her mittens and the tiny speck of her dress peeking out from the hem were stitched in basketweave with dark green Impressions.

When I finish the second wing, it will be time to tackle some of the fur trim so I don't leave all those French knots for last!

Petite very velvet provides such nice texture, not to mention how nice it is to rub the stitched areas!!
