Winter Angel

I rediscovered my crafting mojo in the past few weeks. I finally finished an angel that I designed and stitched quite a while ago. To celebrate this finish I am sharing the chart with all of you. 
Here is Winter Angel. 
She is the first of four seasonal angels. I have designed Spring Angel and am in the process stitching it. I will release that chart when I am finished. My Summer and Autumn Angels are in the design phase right now. 

 I completed Winter Angel as a standing placard.I saw the instructions for this kind of finish in Cross-Stitch and Needlework magazine. I knew that I had finally found the appropriate finish for my angels. 
I will post step by step instructions with pictures soon.

Here is the chart if you want to make your own. Please send me a picture of your Winter Angel when you complete it.

Winter Angel is stitched  over two strands with DMC floss on Charles Craft Carolina Linen, 28 count in Sand. The finished size is approximately 5.25" by 6.5".

I hope you enjoy stitching Winter Angel.

I will be joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday I will join Super Mom - No Cape for the Stitchery Linky Party. Also joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful pieces. It makes me wish that I still did cross stitch. Having seasonal angels to switch out will be such fun.

What a sweet little winter angel. I love her. Since I don't cross-stitch I may have to hint to our oldest that I'd sure love to have one. If I send her this way, she'll have lots of time to make her before next Christmas.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for linking back. Aloha hugs!
