Autumn Angels


I've been working on my inventory of angels again. I will begin my post by showing you my autumn inspired angels just so that I am seasonally correct. I am a little biased because I absolutely love everything about this time of year, especially the colors. I am, indeed, an autumn girl. So, my autumn angels are first! At the end I will post a few photos of my favorites that don't happen to be all dressed up for fall. But we won't hold that against them!

These are my Harvest Angels that I have done in the past. I am excited to begin using some other fall fabrics and lace to create some more of these for my shop. This is the kind of work that cannot be described as work because I derive way too much pleasure from creating them. They take quite a bit of time to make as you can well imagine but it is always worth it in the end.


Here you can see that the paper is stitched in a contrasting (rust/orange) color.


I have begun adding tulle bows to the curled wire hanger on all of my angel ornaments. Somehow, it just completes them plus I really love tulle. So it's a win win situation and I like their new look!


I love the metallic gold flecks in this particular fabric. It has a rich quality to it. I am happy to say that I was able to find some more fabric with the same metallic gold, though it is a larger print. I will begin using that fabric tomorrow on my new Harvest Angels.


These Harvest Angels do add a splash of fall color wherever they are hung. I have hung them on the door knob of my hutch, added them to wreaths, decorated wrapped loaves of pumpkin bread to give as gifts, etc....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------



This was a custom angel that I made in a pink and white color scheme and I decided to make two of them because they were so pretty. I hope I can find more of the pink rosette vertical trim because I plan to make a few more like her. She is so sweet and delicate looking.


She has a pale pink tulle bow on her hanger but it is a little difficult to see here. I love the pink paper rose in her halo.




I love this little angel too! Her hair reminds me of my hair when I crawl out of bed in the morning. Trust me when I say that the tousled hair looks much better on her than it does on me!


She has a sparkly tulle bow on her wire hanger. Her dress is embellished with a wide piece of very beautiful bridal lace. I need to get my hands on some more of that lace. It's so, so pretty!


She has a beaded hemline too and a little white flower!



This one is very sweet too! Simple but sweet.....sometimes less really is more!


These two have gold sparkly tulle bows! They'll never lose their sparkle!


.......and last but not least, my inspirational angel. Always believe.....

I have many more angels that I am working on but this post contains a few of my favorites. Did I mention how much joy I get from making these?

  4. Dearest Linda,
    These are absolutely delicate, ethereal and precious angels! I love the special touches you have added to each one of them, buttons, notions, and sayings. I agree these would be beautiful on a Christmas Tree too. You are blessed with such talent, Linda.
    Thank you for your sweet thoughts and prayers for my son:)

  5. Hi Linda, you know how much I love your darling angels and the one that started me out last year in the fall teacup exchange with Stephanie. I have her proudly displayed this fall season with a dream catcher and it looks so pretty. Love the details you add and I love my white ones on my Christmas tree during the holidays. Each one here is gorgeous. Love your designs and I am a huge fan!!
    Thanks for stopping by and your kind comment. I started those pumpkins a couple years ago and always look forward to creating them in the fall. Have a great day my friend and blessings for a nice week ahead too.
    Hugs, cm

    1. Happy Sunday afternoon Celestina,
      Well thank you Celestina! I am happy they have such a good home, lol! You are too kind! Yes, I do love your pumpkins! They are just gorgeous as are all your designs! I have not made pumpkins for a very long time. I made the white lace ones this year because the white craft pumpkins at Joanne's were so pricey. And I really like the way white or off white pumpkins look in fall decor. I had forgotten how much fun they are to make.

      Hope you have had a nice weekend. Have a great week and HAPPY FALL!
      xoxo

  6. Those are just beautiful, Linda!
    Each one has her very own character graced with such loveliness. I could see at least one of those hanging beautifully on our Christmas tree.

    You have certainly been a busy lady and I'm sure your shoppe is looking nice and full for the holiday season that is soon upon us.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment, it is always a joy to see you. :)

    Blessings ~ Debbie

    1. Dear Debbie,
      Thank you so much! I have had them hanging on my tree for years and years though they have evolved from their original simpler form! They did not used to be stuffed or as embellished and they could be whipped up in no time. Now they take much more time but it is so fun!

      It's always a pleasure to stop by to read your posts. Yesterday after I was finished reading I left the page open for a while just to listen to the music. They are always old favorites of mine and the instrumental versions are so beautiful.....hope you are having a relaxing Sunday afternoon! Enjoy the week ahead! xoxo

  7. You're so talented Linda! These angels are precious, and I love the details and the sayings too. I also can see these as decorations on a tree and in fact have seen trees decorated solely with angels in the past, but they weren't as pretty as yours!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! I so appreciate your visits :).

  12. Good Evening Linda, Oh my word, your little angels are delightful. I love them. There is so much detail in each and every angel which you have sewn. You must fall in love with each angel that you make.... I know I would.
    I can see these lovely angels hanging from the branches of a Christmas tree..... so pretty.
    Although it is my evening, I think it is your day time, so have a wonderful day today.
    Best Wishes to you.

  14. As the above reader said, these angels so obviously are created from love as well as your huge talent! I'm sure they will bless any home they go to as well as those in your own home. It is amazing how much detail you put into them.

    Thank you so much for the well-wishes you sent me! I'm doing much better now.
