Angels are among us...

Thank you so much for your encouraging words!
I know I should take a bit of a break but do love being here too ~
Seems I'm drawn to my blog...
it is a refuge in it's own way you know.

I played around today in my studio...
just something really simple.
I made an angel wing pattern ~
and this is what transpired:

Simple hand gathered ruffles using my favorite glue, Fabri-tac!
I just ran a line of glue onto my base and scrunched up
my little ruffles with my fingers (which are quite peeley right now!)

Of course I had to add a seam binding bundle and hanger ~
what do you think?
They are about 8" high and ready to hang
Just listed in my Etsy store!

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday my dear friends ~
hugs and love,

So beautiful!

These little wings are absolutely gorgeous!

They're wonderful wings that's what I think. What a great way to do them. Did you ever get involved with the angel making that was all the rage created from an inverted cone and doll head and copious amounts of old sheet dipped in starch for draping? Then the entire thing would be spray painted. I'm thinking the painter's cloth fabric and those wings would work beautifully.

So pretty! Glad you shared your creation with us! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Love these...and you Dawn!
I always like peeling the glue off my fingers...have since grade school. Does that make me a geek?

NanaDiana said...

Those are a thing of beauty, Dawn. I have never used that Fabric-tac. Does it grab right away then? Some of those fabric glues I used take forever to "grab hold" and you end up standing there holding things in place forever. xo Diana

If this is what you create when you are in a funk, Dawn . . . This is just lovely! I could see these hanging everywhere at Christmas, but they are perfect for everyday, too.

Your wings are darling Dawn, I love making them also, except I did a running stitch and gathered!

By the way, I also loved your handiwork on your walls in your beautiful home.

I am still trying to get moved in a year after we have been here in North Carolina. I wonder if I will ever get just settled and have time on my hands. I just don't see that coming. Living the forest I am never bored. Fall is in the air.

Smiles, Cyndi

Hugs, Mary

Life does have it's ups and downs.
Time makes everything better one way or another.

So beautiful and very angelic! I totally understand not being able to stay away from your blog. That is how I feel, also. There is something so comforting being able to reach out to like-minded people who are there to support you. I will now have to head over to your etsy store... ta, ta!!

Dortesjs said...

awww so adorable and very sweet

Oh, the angel wings are gorgeous! What a wonderful gift this would be for a friend who has lost a loved one--perhaps for the first Christmas without him or her. For boys or men, the fabric and other trims would be more masculine--maybe use strips of denim for the ruffles, which could be made flatter and less "ruffly"; and the hanger and bow could be made from burlap or canvas strips, or even twill ribbon/tape.

As for your "funk", my dear, remember that when something that's supposed to be enjoyable becomes more of a burden or an obligation (at least temporarily) than anything else, you owe it to yourself to take a break. Whether you post daily or not, we really do love you. And we really do understand.

marda said...

Just precious...you do come up with some inspirational ideas.

Lady Pamela said...

Your post today was so uplifting after reading a discouraging email from my DD. I love your angel wings. Will you be making more? I see your first one is already sold. What a blessing they will be for someone in their home.

Barbara Jean said...

so sweet girl
I know what you mean about taking a break. I did that once. lasted about 2 days!

Even though I do to have many visitors any more, I still love posting.
