Angels

In 2001 or 2002, I saw a few little angels sitting on a tree at a Craft Show in Brisbane. There were a few different ones, some made with baubles, some with stars, some with fabric and some with ribbon.  I bought one of each.

Whilst DD1 was at High School and involved with the Music program - I made about 200 angels 3 years in a row to sell at school concerts to raise money for the Music Support Group and I started making them as gifts for my sewing buddies, work colleagues and a few others - including my hairdresser, beautician and podiatrist.  About 30 I think.
So, the 2002 model was born: - Ribbon

And in 2003: - Star

2004: - Round bauble

2005:  This time I made two models - one was made using a silver thimble - just for my sewing group (I only had one at the time)


and the others got a silver bell and ribbon model.

2006: - Doyley - I had done a class at small Craft Fair at Carina Leagues Club

2007: - Half circle

2008: - Felt

2009: - Pearl

2010:- Hexagon

2011: - Flying Angel

2012: - Babushka

2013: - Machine Embroidery

2014 - Paper Clay  (I'm up to 60 now - my husband likes to give them to HIS work colleagues..I don't anymore.)

I took this picture at a friend's place - this is the whole collection up until 2015.



2015 - a Button angel
Found on Pinterest - bought a big collection of buttons, used lace painted with gold paint and glitter glue for the wings and a gold flower shaped split pin for the halo.


2016
I had a plan (Plan A) - something I had hiding away...after half an hour on the first one I decided it wasn't for me - well not for 2016 anyway...so I had to hatch another plan - this is plan C.  Conceived wandering through the papercraft section of Spotlight.



2017

This year it is a wooden cotton reel in two sizes (the packs I bought had 2 sizes so rather than horde/waste a lot I used both sizes), and wooden beads painted silver.  The middles are decorated with various papercraft supplies, the wings are ribbons sewn and glued on.


Sometimes I make a separate purple one for a particular person.



2018??
Well believe it or not I already have a couple of ideas.  Thats a big advantage come November when I start to panic!
