I haven't done a lot of stitching since the angel, i've been so busy. I started a robin card but finding it tiresome as there are so many fractionals on the leaves but i'm doing a bit every day. I'm now waiting for some lemon sparkle fabric from silkweaver to do this pattern 'An angels garden'. Ive never used opalescent fabric before but this should be a nice easy project. I took the finished L&L angel to the framers today. It cost £55 but has a gorgeous chunky gold frame and two mounts which will be red and a gold trim. It will be 2-3 weeks but really looking forward to seeing it.

FINISHED L&L In the arms of an angel

I finished this on the 28th October but have only just got round to taking pics. Ive really enjoyed doing it and hoping to get it framed this month to give to Neils mum for christmas. I am doing some christmas cards now.I kitted up a Robin card kit to do for my Grandma but now i can't find it anywhere:( I am gutted. Ive found another Robin chart from an old Card shop mag. Hopefully the other kit will turn up:)

Heres a bit of detail from the dress. The beads and metallics look fantastic and worth all the hard work in the end:)
