Daughter's Angel

My dear daughter likes to stitch, but does not like following a pattern. She has made several pieces where she drew a picture and then stitched the lines. Not in backstitch, running stitch or stem stitch either, just in whatever she felt like doing. So I thought this piece was really neat. She did it on Aida and used DMC for most of it. The Angel's dress is in metallic DMC and the background is a purple floss she found. She is very proud of it and so am I. When she gets tired of it, it will be mine!

Oh, tell R she did such a great job! I love the free hand approach and that is right up my and my girl's alley. We have been crafting away here as well and just wait until I show the great thing we found that your girl would love. Hope you and a can hook up sometime...keep on sewing R. I am so impressed...way to keep at it too.

Hmmm, how can you make sure she gets tired of it so you can have it? It's wonderful. She did a great job.
