The Guardian Angels are finished!

I finished the rabbit of the Guardian Angel Dogs tonight. We made braided gold cord from 032 Kreinik and covered the seam for the front and the back. I glued mine braid down and only stitched by the closure loop. The ends of the braid are in between the two pieces of foam and the loop is an overhand loop in the remaining cord.

I finished this one the night before last. The canvas front piece is wrapped around crafting foam and the back is oatmeal felt, also wrapped around the foam.
I have wrapped them in tissue and placed them in a foam mailer. Tomorrow the post office will start them on their way to Chilly Hollow and then the ANG auction.
Good luck little dogs.....I hope you earn lots of money for ANG!
Thanks again to Kandice Merric for the design, permission to blog stitch the pieces, and for designing a new one to add to the collection. Also, thanks to Jane in Chilly Hollow for the idea and coordinating all of these!

Hurrah! These look fabulous, Pat! I hope the finishing wasn't too weird compared to what you normally do.

Can't wait to see them. May I put your photos in the slide show on my blog?

Must be a good feeling to have them all beautifully stitched and finished and on their way to Jane.

Seems that Jane will be expecting lots of different shipments in the coming days :-)
