Welcome back to 25 Days of Stitchmas here at Stitching the Night Away where we’re counting down the days to Christmas with awesome cross stitch projects. Every day from now to Christmas we’ll take a look at two holiday stitching projects per day.
Renaissance Angel Stocking from The Vermillion Stitchery is simply beautiful. The model is stitched on 14 count Navy Aida with a project stitch count of 197 x 229.
Christmas angels are perhaps the most popular form of angels that are used in our celebrations. Angels are believed to be immortal, who live in Heaven, and act as intermediaries between God and Humankind.
Traditionally, pictures and poems on angels portray them having human bodies with wings sprouting from their backs.
‘Wings’ are said to symbolize Innocence, Virtue, Purity, Peace and Love, which place them above Humans though they are still under God.
It was the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of Christianity, which first mentions that angels had a human body and angel wings and could fly. (Just a little bit of Angel history and trivia)
Our ornament selection today is also from The Vermillion Stitchery, this Angel Ornaments pattern leaflet has eight different angel ornament patterns to stitch.
These ornaments can be stitched on white plastic canvas or your favorite evenweave or aida fabric and finshed in just about any way you’d like for decoration. They use DMC threads, but don’t be afraid to mix it up a little and add a little sparkle to things on your own.
