Wish upon a star

Everyone needs a little guardian angel in these troubled times. When I first looked through the JCS 2008 ornament issue, I didn't even notice this one. But those issues are so fascinating that I always go back through them multiple times, and I always find something I missed on each review. This is the first one I've stitched from this year's issue. This is "Wish Upon a Star" by Wildflower Stitchery and More. I used one of the hand-dyed fabrics that Miek sent to me and I changed a few colors, added a border and embellished with a few buttons.

That angel is so beautiful! Colorful and cheerful. You're right, guardian angels most be keeping their hands full in this troubled times, I'm sure this one will do the job perfectly!

Love the accents and the hot pink.
