Soft and Romantic~

I dug into my to-be-finished pile and pulled out LHN’s The Angels Sang piece to work on last Friday. I’ve always known that I want to finished this piece into a wall hanging, and this is the final product~ Please excuse the knitting needle, that’s the closest thing to a dowel that I can find around the house right now. I still need to find a proper dowel for it to hanging on.

Pattern: Little House Needleworks “The Angels Sang”
Thread: Crescent Colors & DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 40ct Lakeside Linen in Bittersweet
Finished Size: 13.25” x 16.5”
Completion Date: 01-16-2010
Finishing Date: 05-21-2010

This actually came out a little bit different then my original plan. At first, I only planned to do the white frame, but felt it looked kind of plain, so I added the green around the edge.

Then I felt it looked flat, so I went digging in my buttons collection and was super happy to find these pink buttons. I’m really glad how everything just worked out perfectly~

I think it looks soft and romantic. What do you think?
