It is stitched!

Yes, I finished the Georgian Rabbit Angel stitching! First, I did the wings in a leaf stitch variation using Panache in white 02. Then I did the collar in the buttonhole stitch, also using Panache 02. I then put in a backstitch in the Marlitt 812 using two strands. The cuffs are then buttonholed in Panache39, off white. A single strand of Kreinik 002 HL is laid under the stitches. For the halo, I took more of the 002 HL and made three loops around the head. Then I buttonholed over the three strands so the halo will stand up and away from the head. Next, I will basketweave the background with Splendor 961 in preparation to finish the ornament.

The halo is fascinating! Great job on that. I loved seeing the collar and cuff also. My fish has a similar lacy look but done in lazy daisy stitches. I don't think anything was repeated on any of the angels except the wings on the originals were all the same. Not this time!

LOL

Great job, Pat. I love how the rabbit looks. She might be my favorite. No, that's the parakeet, no I like the dog, but the fish has that beautiful stitch on is gown....

Pat,
The beads on the skirt trim and gold thread used on the cuffs are great additions. I also like the shade of purple you used.

That halo IS great! I may have to steal it, or a variation of it for my dog.
