Although I can not show you the whole picture of my Joan Thommason angel I would like to share her face. Joan says that the face is the most difficult part of the project and if it is not done first the project will probably get put aside. So our class began with the face. There are four colors in the face and everyone’s face looked a little different. It still amazes me that everyone in class followed the same instructions yet the facial expressions of each angel were slightly different. It did feel good to have the face done. It made the angel come alive and I have enjoyed creating her wings and dress. I am working on the front of the angel. Since this is a tree topper there are two canvases, one for the front and one for the back. I have managed to squeeze in a few hours of stitching this past week. It sure felt good to make some progress.
