A Silken Angel ..................................

I took part in another swap on Craftythreadsnyarn Forum. This time we swapped Christmas Decorations. I received a lovely knitted silver and white angel from Chrissy at BrightDyes. This is the angel I sent to the blogless Carolinne.

I made it from the pack of Oliver Twist Silk products I bought at the RDS. The head is a cocoon, the wings silver wire covered with a silk handkerchief, hair and cloak different fibres etc etc. Instead of glueing the bits or sewing it I used pearl topped pins to put it together so it became a recyclable Eco Angel, if Carolinne wants to recycle it that is. I have so enjoyed these monthly swaps as they have persisantly challenged me to try new things :) I look forward to next years challenges :) First up is a Dishcloth swap, great to start spring cleaning with? :)
