Goldwork Angel

This is a goldwork kit that I changed slightly by creating the hair with
a rayon thread and with a drizzle stitch instead of using the gold wire
as it seems to harsh for hair.
The wings are separate and made with an organza fabric attached to wire
and buttonhole stitched and then cut out and attached to the moire backing
fabric that the angel is embroidered on.
This same angel kit is featured on this months edition of Classic Stitches

Terry, this is just beautiful. Goldwork is another 'must do one day' .... and high on my list. Seeing this, makes me itch to learn it 'now' ...

You have really done a wonderful job with this little angel.

I still need to do my first piece of goldwork myself. Hope it turns out as well as yours :-)
