Advent Calendar 2018 – No. 24

The last angel of my Advent Calendar series wishes there be Peace on Earth. This very special figure was also designed and embroidered by Christa Waldmann.

The design measures about 15.5 cm X 16.5 cm. It was stitched on handwoven linen with an 18/cm thread count.

Golden metallic threads highlight some sections and add a sparkle of colour.

The halo was stitched with white Chain stitches and then wrapped with golden metallic threads.

The hair was stitched with Satin stitches.

A golden cross was worked for the closure of the coat.

The tops of the wings were worked with Rose stitches

and the feathers at the bottom of the wing with slanting Blanket stitches.

The coat was filled with single Satin stitch bars.

The dress was filled with Rose stitches, worked in staggered straight rows.

The dress edge received a decoration of interlaced Herringbone stitches variant “e” (Schwalm Curved Lines, Narrow Borders, and Ornamental Stitches) and single Satin stitch bars.
The shoe features Herringbone stitches.

Lettering and banner were stitched with white Chain stitches and then wrapped with golden metallic threads.

The design collection Advent Calendar 2018 contains the banner text in both English “PEACE ON EARTH” and Latin “PACEM IN TERRIS.”

Along with the angel of peace

I wish all of you some thoughtful and contemplative days.

Merry Christmas!
