I've been wanting to stitch this Angel out for a long time and have finally done two. One for me and one for my niece who is very ill.

This is the original Marie Osmond design from her lace collection volume 1, which sadly, is no longer available.
Thanks for looking. hugs n roses to all, M

Thanks Kay, I've enjoyed stitching out some more of the designs from the collection and only had a problem with one that seemed more dense than the others.

I just found this FSL Angel design for sale at the link below for those people who were looking for the Marie Osmond one. It isn't quite the same but similar in style.

I got the angel when it was given as a free design years ago. They may have been promoting Marie's Lace Collection. It stitches out beautifully...I have made several as gifts.

I missed out on the free one but was very lucky to purchase the whole collection on a Brother Card.
Pity is, I can only stitch out the designs on my Brother machine and it stitches at breakneck speed, which I am not very comfortable with. LOL!!!

Great job!
When I tried this it was floppy because the stablizer all rinsed out. What did you use and how did you get it to remain semi-stiff?

2 comments
meganne by meganne 22 Dec 2016

Thanks keitha.
I only ever use Fabric type WSS, two layers, rinsing only until the stabiliser disappears is the main trick.
The design should still feel sticky, so care is needed to pat it dry very quickly, in between the folded over towel. Then, remove the design from the towel, shape it and sit it (very lightly) on something solid, not fabric, that it won't stick to.
With these Angels I would suggest feeding the rounded ends into their matching loops, while they are still wet.
FSL should be handled as little as possible.
Hope this helps. hugs n roses, M

First of all welcome to the Cute family and secondly Meg has mentioned in her post that this designs is now no longer available. Love Chris

meganne by meganne edited 22 Dec 2016

Thanks Chris,
hamannjb, I purchased the Marie Osmond lace collection many, many, years ago but, as previously mentioned, it is no longer available to purchase.
Maybe if enough people wrote to OESD they might be persuaded to release the collection again?
