Harvest Folk Angel

I had an idea that I wanted to use some of my wool to make an angel and I had this pattern lying around that I had bought ages ago from Sweet Meadow Farm so I decided to use it as a basis for this "Harvest Angel". I do like the way she is flying through the air but there is something not authentic about it because she doesn't look or feel like most of my other work. It's more work to create your own patterns and sometimes I am just lazy and try one that is already worked out but the finished product never feels right to me... even though others usually appreciate the work. There is a lesson in that....
Here is that lovely orange wool that I dyed the other day. I do love working with wool especially when the weather gets colder. My studio has a faint smell of mothballs and I know it's not good for you but I kind of like that too!

Everything you make is beautiful, and has your unique and lovely style.....but that angel...she is truly lovely, simple, and beautiful well done, it is hard to think up new styles but you do fabulously.
