Ivory Angel - 'pointing a toe

The canvas has been moved from the scroll frame to stretcher bars to counteract buckling at the bottom of the stocking.

So while I'm working on the bottom of the canvas, I started stitching the toe.  The background was stitched in basketweave with Petite Very Velvet V604.  The vine motif has been started in tent stitches/basketweave with Vineyard Silk Classic Bark.  This shade of brown ties in with the lighter brown of the angel's chair.

I much prefer stretcher bars to scroll frames because of that buckling tendency. You're really making great progress!
