Christmas Angel - Part 3

With the angel's wings completed, it was time to begin some of the fur trim.  For this I'm using Vineyard Silk Classic Bright White in French knots.  White is a tricky shade when it comes to picking threads. There's just enough difference between the white DMC floss of the wings and the white Vineyard Silk.  There's also a big difference between the smooth surface of encroaching Gobelin stitches in the wings and the French knot trim to provide the contrast I was looking for.

Back now to stitching the bottom of her robe with red Petite Very Velvet!

The French knots provide great
dimension to the trim

I love your angels and I think the French Knots are perfect. Hope you are staying is to early to be this cold and tomorrow we are expecting 1-3 inches of snow. Not ready for this at all!
