My very first Angel!

Finally, finally, finally, the first Angel for the "PS Wreath SAL" has finished now!!!
I'm too late and so I was really worried about this.
About this SAL always reminds me hurry to DO, but I really took matters easy, I was thinking that this design is quite easy to stitch and would be finished quickly, but actually not at all...

Full of BS and gold thread made me almost crazy, lol...
It was the first time for me to use gold thread, but as I've heard of it, it's really hard to stitch!
Uhh, there are many designs left which is used gold threads... sigh.


But what helped me is, this Angel's peaceful face and lovely sheep!
Look at this Angel's face, it really makes me feel relief.


Actually I have seven Angels to go, lol
Have enough time??? asking myself, but will try to do my best to finish as the schedule!

Well, now I'm so feeling better because I could finish the one I really had to do!

Congratulations on your first angel and it looks perfect. I don't like gold thread much either to sew with its awful stuff.
