Christmas is Almost Here

So I figured it was time for an update. It is getting down to the wire and my Folk Art Angels are no done yet. Two are framed and ready to go (present & candle). One still needs some french knots (tree). And I am working on the one that is holding the wreath... I have the lower dress, border, hair and wings done. I did something different on the wreath angel... I did the white and grey in DMC Satin floss. It is really shiny with a slight purple hue. It looks good on the wings and dress... it kinda makes them glow! There are all the presents to wrap so I can only commit so much time... ugggg. I will post final pictures after Christmas.

The family is headed to California for Christmas to visit family.

The real question is.... What project should I work on after I get back???

  1. Guardian Angel (L&L) - My very first project and about 1/2 done.
  2. Summer Fairy (Joan Elliott) - Just started.  
  3. Swirling Peacock (Joan Elliott) - Not Started
  4. The Gardener (Joan Elliott) - Not Started
  5. Oriental Lady (Joan Elliott) - Not Started

Please let me know what you think...

Happy Stitching!!!

I am a fan of Joan elliott and had hoped to finish a geisha before crimbo - but not to be :( I love them all and would maybe recommend finishing guardian angel, but a new year must mean a new start! and my vote is for...oriental lady :) Merry Christmas!

My vote is for the peacock. I haven't seen this one before and it looks cool :)

Merry Christmas!

I'm with Kate a new year is for new starts and any of Joan Elliott's designs would be a great choice.

Oh, the peacock is beautiful! I would start that one ASAP. Why wait until you get back? Why not take it with you to California?

Joysze said...

Whoah, tough decision... Any of them calling to you the loudest? Which would you like to see finished first?

My vote is for Swirling Peacock. :D

Safe travels to CA and have a blessed Christmas.

By the looks of the previous comments the Swirling Peacock wins and it is also my vote.
Merry Christmas
