Christmas Angel - Part 4

The angel's robe is now complete, stitched in basketweave with red Petite Very Velvet and DMC floss #498.  Very lush and festive!

In my last post, I forgot to mention that I'd worked a row of tent stitches with Vineyard Silk Classic Evening Haze over the lines in the fur trim where the robe closes in the front and at the hem.  French knots here would have been overkill--I wanted to show just a hint of the break.

The trim on the angel's torso and one sleeve is done and part of the hem begun, all areas where I don't have more stitching to do.
