Alright, as no one seems to have recognised it, I won't keep you in suspenders any longer...this design is another Joan Elliott piece called Christmas Spirit, and she was published in UK Cross Stitcher last year. Here's where I'm at with her as of right this minute...


And this is how she's supposed to look. As you can see, she was designed as an angel, but I'm leaving off her wings and halo because I like her better without them.

She's quite small (by my standards anyway - lol) and fits on a fat eighth. Oh, and the fabric I'm using is SMF Violets In The Shade...

She is gorgeous!I like the way you 'upgraded' the picture, she looks even better without the wings.

beautiful ! I'm stitching her as well at the moment, and I'm also leaving out the wings and the halo, because I thought she would look better paired with "Renaissance Lady" (also from Joan Elliott).
It's fun to see how you are stitching it, we don't do it in the same order, even if we both finished the haed !

Keep on the good work, I will be watching your progress ;)
