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!
