Here is the Heirloom Angel from http://lindeegembroidery.com/ - that I have been wanting to stitch out - ever since I 1st saw it - I did mine with a Madeira Super Twist Thread - called 'Diamond' - it has an opal and crytal shading to it - I atached an embroidered flower with some pastal ribbons and several swarovski crytals on the crown and skirt. I hope you like the look of my version.

Very pretty and is different than many other 3D FSL Angels!
Lovely work Shirlene!

Did you use the 30 weight in the Super Twist and a 14 needle as they suggest on the Madeira website?

Can you give me an idea of what the price is of the thread is in the large cone size?

All your Angels turned out lovely!

EastWitch2

shirlener88 by shirlener88 09 Jan 2012

Thank you EastWitch2, I do appreicate that you like it.

Yes, it is the 30 weight in the Super Twist and I actually used a 16 needle or denim needle - as I felt that my thread broke too often without it.

I am sure you can just click on the cone and find out the cost - but I do believe it is $29 - or there about.

I do thank you for enjoying the angels.

shirlener88 by shirlener88 09 Jan 2012

Jenne, thank you very much - crystals are not hard to do - you just warm the gun up - like an iron - get the crystal where you want it - place the gun on the crystal and wait from 15-20 seconds or so - it should be secure and off to the next one.

Gorgeous. That is a pretty thread you used and a touch of crystals give it a nice finished look. Does this require a large/mega hoop?

2 comments
shirlener88 by shirlener88 08 Jan 2012

Anita, thank you very much - it doesn't require a large/megaa hoop - but it helps if yo have one - she has the design for the larger and 5x7 hoop. It just makes it easier to have the designs combined, if you ask me.

I can do 5X7 and it's a toss up between saving for Embird or a mega hoop. lol

1 comment
shirlener88 by shirlener88 08 Jan 2012

Thak you dear - as far as putting this one together - the head and wings were stiched together in the hoop - they are resting on the skirt - with two little bars that hang down and I inserted them in a couple holes in the skirt - the skirt itself is also stitch in the hoop - with all these buttons that run on two side of it - the you interlock together to close it up - after of coarse stiching up the smaller portion of the skirt for the waistline - that part you just do on your machine. The work - might have come - in the waiting for it all to be stitched out - to do it in the bigger hoop - you have to have a 7.75 x 11.75 hoop or you will have to stitch each skirt panel - one by one and attach them - as you go. Go to the website and have a look. http://lindeegembroidery.com/

shirlener88 by shirlener88 08 Jan 2012

Caroline, thank you so very much - I didn't realize that it was - but I know why - that is how I felt - when I saw her - I wanted to do it NEXT. The top which is the head and wings took about 2 1/2 hours - the skirt took almost 4 hours and then doing all the rinsing, drying, staging, emblishment another couple hours. Expect to spend some time with this project - but it is so worth it.
