A Favorite Thread




Sometimes, on a beautifully painted canvas, angel's wings can present a real challenge. One approach is to use stitches and threads to make the wings more bird-like. Another is to use Candlelight by YSL and just stitch over the painted wings with a basketweave stitch. The Candlelight lets the paint come through. We've been using it quite a while and love the way it looks. Suzanne (who stitched the angel stocking) has declared it her new favorite thread.

The finished Melissa Shirley angel was done by Chris. Cappy is working on hers now. The close-up is of her wings.
