Folk art angel

12th Oct 2016

Here is my picture of the Folk-art angel that I designed for the latest edition of Gold Cross Stitch magazine, issue 133, out now. This pretty angel was such fun to work on with my original ideas based on a New England style design. This meant working with simple lines, black and white gingham and a homely basket to carry all of the presents and sentiments for the season. With her pretty red and green outfit decorated just with white spots and simple trees added to a yellow band, she looks ready for Christmas with the cheery birds and holly and berries to decorate the design.
