JBW French Country angels + sunbathing

This is my progress on Bizzi Creations "Sunbathing" I actually bought the chart about 5 years ago on my first trip to the Nashville Needlework Market. Stitching began in 2008 and then it languished but I am back at it now and it is coming along very well. The fabric is linen from Crossed Wing Collection. I took some time out to make these 4 little JBW French County angels. I have 4 great-nieces so they will become ornaments for the little girls for Christmas. All were made from scraps of left over fabric and left over variegated silk. I love these tiny little stitches. 25 ct is really one of my favourite fabrics! Also I used some feature, for which I always have to search, on my computer to flip the chart so that two of the angels face in the opposite direction.

OH WOW Ann! I love the angels on the black fabric! I just stitched this myself, I used white 28 ct. linen (1 over 1) stitching with Belle Soie Sister Scarlett, its cute as a button, these in the series just are darling! I love her new Noel Wreath too ;) and did you see the Star one in the JCS ornie mag? I stitched that one too, same fabric same thread. CUTE!
