Two little angels look at their stars.
The design measures about 8 cm X 9 cm. It was stitched on handwoven linen with a 17/cm thread count.
The stars were stitched with gold metallic thread.
The hairstyles are different worked with random straight stitches.
One dress consists of three Satin stitches alternating with one Cross stitch worked in staggered rows.
The Limet pattern Rose stitches (Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework and Lesson #2) is worked in the other dress.
This pair of cute little angels is perfect for seasonal greeting cards.
But it is also nice and easy to mount these angels in an embroidery hoop for a casual holiday display.
I can also imagine some of these angels walking in a row as if in a lantern procession.
This cute, easy and quick to stitch, design is – with variations – also part of the just published collection Advent Calendar 2018.
