Today babushka angels welcome you.
Visitors of my exhibitions already know these angels from my table runner. Three angels (the same motif in two different sizes) were arranged in a group.
The design measures about 32 cm X 18.5 cm. It was stitched on handwoven linen with a 22/cm thread count.
The contrast of dense and more open patterns makes the figures interesting.
The short angel has the following filling patterns:
Hair: Net (Limetrosen I)
Bodice: Rose stitches in a grid cut 1, leave 2
Sleeves: Narrow Pearl pattern (Wickelstiche)
Wings: Cone (Limetrosen I)
Skirt: Little Stars and Rose stitches – pattern 13 (Stars)
Skirt edge: Rose stitches (Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework and Lesson #2)
The tall angel has the following filling patterns:
Hair: High and Low – simple (Limetrosen I)
Bodice: single Satin stitch bars (Wickelstiche)
Sleeves: Diagonal Cross filling stitch (Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework and Lesson #2)
Wings: Scales (Limetrosen I)
Skirt: Double Satin stitch bars and Little Stars Pattern 14 (Stars)
Skirt edge: always alternating single and double Satin stitch bars (Wickelstiche)
This pretty design is available pre-transferred on 16 threads/cm linen cut to measure 55 cm X 120 cm. The price is €28.50 (includes 19 % sales tax) plus shipping, or €23.95 plus shipping for customers outside the EU.
