Angel Brooches

"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels, unawares."  Anonymous

I've always loved that quote!  It reminds me that there are angels everywhere!

I finished up on my little angel brooches:

 

The background is velveteen & antique lace.  I did SRE around the angels (which I hand-painted and glittered) and the tatting around the edges is vintage tatting.  I can do tatting, but I really prefer to use vintage whenever I can.  I just love these!

I also finished up the stitching my Cherub CQ Trinket Box:




I hope to have the time tomorrow to put it together.  I've already painted the box and I think this will be so pretty when I get it all put together.

Before I head out for today, I received another package in the mail from Gina in Australia:

 

I have the sweetest blog friends!  Thank you so much Gina!
Well, I'm off to put an order together and then I'm done for the day.

I love the card with the kittie asleep in the flowers...how cute is that!! Your wee angels look so pretty too. I learned to needle tat once and then didn't keep up with it, so now I doubt I can remember how to do it. Too bad!

Hi, I enjoy your blog, and I'm so glad you are feeling better. I have a SIL who's bi-polar, and my daughter struggles with depression; you are doing well!
Your quote this morning is from the Bible: Hebrews 13:2, if you're interested.

Your brooches are just beautiful! I really like the SRE around the angel faces and the tatted lace is such a lovely touch in the "Hens and Chicks" edging! I do tatting and want so much to learn how to do SRE so I can do fun things with my tatting "mistakes"! :)
Very inspiring! I really want to learn SRE!
