Angel of Hope

Angel of ...Hope?

Or DEATH?!  Bwah ha ha ha haa...


Here's Angel of Hope - wow, she needs a nickname, like Gracie's :D - after her first rotation turn.  I didn't get very far but I did get her face done.

I'm not sure about that stitch on the bridge of her nose - it is a half stitch on the chart, but the dark fabric shows through.  I think that when I get her back out, I will make it a 3/4 stitch, instead.  Then her nose won't look so odd.  I may also backstitch her lips in a darker color.  I'm not sure about that, though.  My next goal will be to finish her hair and start a wing.

She is supposed to offset Gracie - they are the same size and they'll sort of face each other.  So I did her skin over two, like Gracie's.  The different fabric doesn't bother my Mum, and she has a different frame saved back, but she wants to hang them on either side of a dresser, with their faces toward each other, so I thought the skin should be the same.

I'm tempted to get Archangel out now, though - it's Mirabilia March!  We'll see what happens!

Happy Stitching,



  1. Another great choice:), will look so pretty with Gracie. Ooh, backstitch on the face makes me cringe, you're doing a wonderful job. Lovely progress!

  2. I can't wait to see the progress on this one. It's already beautiful.

  3. Wonderful progress Tama. She looks great.


  4. Good progress on your Leap Year start! I'm afraid I've only managed to add a few black windows on mine...but I always knew it would be a SLOW labour of love lol:)

  5. Great progress she reminds me of Princess Leia lol

  6. Gorgeous progress. She looks lovely.

  7. Nice progress and I agree on Leia, would that work as a nickname? :)

  8. Your Angel of Hope looks great =) I'm sure she will be amazing and a perfect match for Gracie =)
