Wings (birds and angels)



For this piece, I have collaged the picture, poem, lace, buttons, etc onto a piece of vintage crazy quilt. It is 5" x 7" size. I like the way this becomes a combination of old and new stitches and I wonder what the person was like who embroidered on the vintage quilt and what her circumstances were. The vintage quilt actually has some machine stitches on it in white thread holding the pieces in place before they were embroidered. I am listing this on ebay this evening. Plus 2 little angel ATC's (2 1/2" x 3 1/2")

We all need angels.

These angel ATC are stunning and don't you just love the way some times God works in our favor and allows us time to reflect on other things. His love and understanding so overwhelming!

Cuuuute!

Oh Cat, I have not been sewing and stitching over the last couple of days (too busy at work and in the garden) but when I see your wonderful art of work, I really miss my needles... :-)))

I'll come back this week-end to wish you happy Easter!
