imageWhen packing away the Christmas decorations I remembered the fairy / angel that I finally finished in the lead up to Christmas. She has topped the tree topless and armless for several years, the arms were made, they just needed attaching, and I needed a tiny rectangle of soft white cotton to line the bodice. The skirt, pantaloons and bodice are part of an old recycled embroidery anglaise petticoat, and the wings are Angelina. A couple of beads for eyes, a few tiny stitches for her mouth, and some unravelled leftover wool for her hair. Done! crazy that she had taken so long to finish.ImageImageImage
