The Angel has been finished.

I've been idle for a while, both kids were sick. But now it is finally over! And I can upload the last pictures of the Snow Angel.

I had some trouble with fringes. I tried with Sherry's inspired ones first, and it did not work at all, judge by yourselves.

But they looked nice anyhow ;)


Than I have tried three more versions and have finally made up my mind. Even my husband, who was very much anti-fringe at the beginning, has agreed that the necklace looks better now ;)
Ta-daaaaaaa:


This is the finished Snow Angel.

Ahmagad så snyggt! Jag är så imponerad att jag inte vet vart jag ska ta vägen. Och inte bara den helt fantastiska snöängeln utan även tidigare alster. Wow!

I am SO impressed with your Snow piece!! And you're such a "new" beader! It's amazing, Olga. And I love the way you took photos as it evolved - a wonderful way to show your readers how these masterpieces come alive. Great job!

Thank you ladies!
The Angel has a piece of my soul in it and it won't be easy to give it away. But it will stay in the family and I know it's going to be well taken care of :)
Thank you very much for the warm welcome to the Etsy team!

очень красивая вышивка получилась! а основу для вышивки вы в Европе нашли или в американских инет-магазинах покупали?

Foxan said...

Спасибо большое!
Lacy's я купила у нас, в Швеции. Тут есть одна компания продающая и основу, и Ultrasuede. Но из Америки покупать дешевле, конечно. Правда, нужно покупать много чтобы оправдать цену пересылки.
