Thanks to Woodlawn’s annual exhibit, I finally found out that the designer of the angel is Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum. It is called Angel of Hope (http://www.tiag.com/designs/LL-13.html). In fact, Ellice, ANG board member and docent, was able to identify the designer of the angle that I had cross stitched for my sister (https://melitastitches4fun.wordpress.com/2011/04/23/anitas-angel/) because I saw someone else’s piece on display as we chatted! I must have stitched it on 16 count Aida cloth and it is 10&1/2 x 17&3/4. The piece, #420, was one of the highlights for me – it was beautiful! Many thanks to stitcher, Barbara, for submitting it. You did lovely work.
I finished this angel for my sister, Anita, several years ago (before joining ANG). I meant to post this on her birthday (March 29) but since she was born on Easter, this is still timely!
She had started it & then didn’t have the time (or inclination?) to complete this counted cross stitch piece. How could I say no when she asked if I would do it for her? It was quite challenging to follow the chart as I recall. There were a lot of shades of blue, white/gray, & gold. And, there are a few deviations – not that anyone would be able to tell.
