Here's a couple of pieces that I've finished recently:


Sue's Angel by Purple Heather, on Flickr


My Angel by Purple Heather, on Flickr

They are based on a project in a magazine I get - Stitch, the UK Embroiderers' Guild publication (rather than the Interweave one), designed By the fabulous Annette Emms.

They are both on a background of handmade felt, with embellished scarves/organza. The angel bodies are more handmade felt, With wings and faces made from an old French novel, plus more organza. I've added beading, buttons and hand stitches, including running, feather, Buttonhole and whipped backstitch. They were lovely to make, and look really nice hanging on the wall. Each one is about A5 size.

These are really gorgeous, PH! I really love the combination of media, and your colour combinations.

Those are so pretty. I love all the textures and the non traditional display of the angels. Perfection!

Thanks both, I'm liking the unframed look, it lets the texture come through.
