    Tried some redwork! What do you suggest I add to make this the focus of a small hanging?

    Very pretty. I would pull from my stash and let fabrics tell you what to do next:)

    Color it with crayolas. It would give it some highlights and depth. I love your pattern.

    Do you mean in redwork or pieced? If red work, I think some words from Hark the Herald Angel Sings would be nice. The Christmas story from the Bible would be nice too. If pieced, I also think Stars would be nice or Flying Geese or 3 D pinwheels.

    She is beautiful! I love red work!

    Maybe just some stars--simple is always stunning.

    What about those fusable crystals, as long as it doesn't take away from the angel. Maybe a crown in red.

    I was thinking stars, also and maybe you can make them "twinkle" somehow, with silver or gold thread outlined. Just an idea! Like the possibility of words, too.
