Some time ago, I designed three little Angel Ornaments to give away to my friends. They've been sitting in my stitched treasures, and were begging to be shared with you all. However, the original angel had rather bigger hair (!) and was stitched with more subdued colours, so I thought I'd give this first angel a bit of a lift before showing her off. First of all, Yvonne gave her a name, Angela! Secondly, the Office Staff, CyberStaff ladies, and I, each stitched her in the colours we wanted to share with you. So here she is, and I hope that you have fun stitching her for your friends this Christmas. Merry Christmas to all of our customers from the all of us at Victoria Sampler!

Cross Stitch entire design using 2 strands of floss. Cross stitch using one strand of Kreinik #4 braid if called for or two strands of Blending Filament if called for.

Backstitch outlines of wings using one strand of DMC floss, and/or Kreinik blending filament, or Kreinik#4 braid. If the symbols show two colour numbers, just take one strand of each and blend on your needle. Backstitch outlines for face, hands and feet using 1 strand of floss. Backstitch outline of bows and string using 1 strand of floss. When stitching the bows and string, stitch one bow, making sure the last stitch comes up in the center of bow. String bell, bead, or buttons on your thread. Then bring your needle down in the center of where the bow will be stitched at the other hand, and finish stitching the second bow. Allow some slack in your loose thread to allow your bell or other bauble to hang down a bit. Tack down the bauble to the dress with some matching floss to stop the bauble from dangling if you wish.
