This little mischievous angel takes the lead.
The design measures about 12 cm X 11 cm. It was stitched on handwoven linen with an 18/cm thread count.
The hair was stitched with 2 strands of 6-ply stranded cotton.
Double Crosses in straight rows (Openwork Pattern Samplers) are worked in the gloves with a grid cut 1, leave 2.
Wave stitches (Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework) are worked in the boots.
It is suitable and easy to mount this angel in an embroidery hoop for a casual holiday display.
But if one wishes to hang it so that it is backlit (e.g., hung in a window), threads carried on the back side will be visible. One can remedy this by using double knots at the beginning and end of each small section separately and trimming the thread tails short.
I decided to place my little mischievous angel on a bag.
