Merry Christmas Angel

My Merry Christmas Angel has been stitched for quite some time, but I could never decide how to finish her.....wall-hanging, framed, etc. Since I have been making my seasonal angels into placards, I finally decided to finish her in the same way. Here she is:
I decided to just use a thin satin ribbon around the edge. The glue was still drying on top when I took this picture, thus the white line.
The fabric was in my stash. 
I am quite pleased with the final result.
I finally got around to putting up my village last night.
Here are some close-ups.

The sun coming in from the nearby window makes the scene look foggy.
Today we will be doing some Christmas shopping and maybe putting the lights on the tree that we purchased yesterday. It smells wonderful.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching. I might be able to stitch some of my Prairie Schooler Santa tonight. I still need to do plenty of card writing, shopping and decorating though and I haven't even started the cookies.

Thanks for stopping by!

My shopping is done and I don't really do baking. I still have three gifts to make and my cards to do. No wrapping done yet either...I have a busy couple of weeks ahead of me. Your angel is looking festive! I love the village too! Have fun getting everything done! I love all the preparations this time of year !

I love how your Merry Christmas angel turned out. It's going to be easy to display and easy to store (a bonus). The Christmas village looks great with all that "snow".

What a lovely finish! And I love your Christmas village. (It is very foggy here this morning, so I smiled with the foggy look the lighting created for your photo.

Hello Cathie,
I love your Christmas Angel finish. The ribbon is a nice touch. The Christmas Village looks great and the fog effect is cool. One of these days I will start making a Christmas Village. My son has always wanted us to do it.
