Christmas Angel

Christmas Angel

"Christmas Angel 1997" by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum of Lavender & Lace/Told in a Garden. Free pattern available at
http://www.tiag.com/otherproducts/1997preview.html

The threads are the same as in the chart except for the metallic braids/blending filaments (I used DMC 304 floss plus metallic 5282 for the red braid, and 3347 floss plus the same gold metallic for the chartreuse braid); the beads are as in the chart. Finished in the same manner as in the tutorials here -- https://istitchtutorials.blogspot.com/2013/02/quaker-pin-wheel.html -- and here -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EwVFL9sASE -- except that I did not use glue but stitched the back and front together, enclosing a wire loop as a hanger.

Finished late 2022, in time to give as a Christmas ornament. A charming piece!
