    finished this last night and gave it away

    This was taken to day to a girl in her 20's that is mentally handicapped, as an early Christmas gift to hang on her tree, once my neighbors (her aunt and uncle, who are raising her) get it put up.

    I hope you enjoy seeing it.

    Oohh, Beautiful!! I love doing thread crochet. I have done a few snowflakes and I enjoy doilys but I have never attempted a 3 dimensional object. What a lovely angel for her tree. I am sure it will be a treasured ornament for years to come.

    I hope she will love it when I am long gone, and been forgotten. It is, after all the gift that should be special for her...not me. Thanks to all of you for your comments.

    Very pretty angel! You do nice work! Are you still making the dolls too?
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    So pretty. I never learned how to do that and always think I should have when I see such pretty things as yours.
