Description

This was sewn following a pattern by Mirabilia Designs.

The write-up of this piece according to the original designer, Nora Corbett:
This angel, robed in rich blues and greens, was inspired by the beautiful statues in Baroque Cathedrals and images in Renaissance paintings. He is a heavenly messenger with a gold halo and staff accentuated with golden threads and beads. You can keep his message mysterious or add your own special date or thought onto his rolled scroll.

I made changes to the original pattern, as follows:
This was sewn in a 13 count pewter Aida cloth instead of the 32 count Tumbleweed Linen. 
The green sash looks golden in the original work.
The beads and metallic threads also differ from the original work.

It took me about 8 months to finish this, working on it part time for a few hours each week.
This work is still not prepped for hanging as a framed picture, thus the creases are still present.
