January is one of the best times to work on new ideas in the studio. I have been working on Angel Tree Toppers. I made an angel for my daughters Christmas tree by expanding on angels that I have always made as ornaments. I love how they turned out!
I have finished three more since then. They are not traditional Christmas colors so they can be displayed at all times of the year. Vintage lace and buttons, new Civil War print fabric, rickrack, beads, bells, wool wings and stars, with stitching make each angel one of a kind.

I like these so much I am going to make several more for two studio tours and a craft show planned for this year.
