I am so excited for this week's Sneak Peek! Beautiful ornaments have just been gracing the mailbox since the beginning of the month because I participated in Jennifer's first ever ornament exchange! I absolutely LOVE each and every one I received - thank you so much everyone! What fun...I thought I was a little crazy, because I was getting ready for that holiday show too! How would I ever have the time? Not to mention the time to maybe go get more supplies - so as I looked around to see what I had on hand so that I could move quickly at the store, I found I already had everything I needed! Here is a picture of the entire Angel Choir:




These little Angels are based on the ATC sized "Art Angels" featured in the May/June 2009 issue of ClothPaperScissors...I was trying to learn my design program for my computer that sews (aka my Brother embroidery machine)...



The Angel is stitched entirely by the machine on recycled linen (a pair of trousers I wore in my office days). For the contrast backing I used some of those quilt scraps that are soooo hard to throw away...



but first the words are sewn on as well as the trim .so that you do not see that stitching on the back of the ornament. They are finished with some stamping, some shading on cheeks and lips, some got embellishments, and all got vintage buttons over their satin ribbon hangers...



I hope each of my sweet blogland friends enjoyed their angel! Click on the Sneak Peek button at the top of this post or here and head on over to Studio JRU to see more of the exchange...and have a blessed Christmas..

Cindy, Thank you so very much for the beautiful angel ornament. Love the colors and the beads. She just might stay out all year!!

I have had all of my ornaments from the exchange displayed together through the season...and I don't want to take them down!

So to hold a piece that you created in my own hands. There is something so special about handmade...
