Treetop angel, finished

Just had to share the gorgeous finishing job that one of Needle Nicely's finishers did on the Dede treetop angel. 

The moire gusset is about 1 1/4 inches wide.   I love the way it was shaped.  Then a twist cording made from DMC perle 5 was handstitched on.

And the back view of the angel. 


  1. Very nice, Mary Agnes--do you have a tree in the shop for her to grace?

  2. Anne, this is a petit-point angel which I finished stitching this fall for a customer who purchased it from Needle Nicely in 1987. She plans to give it to her daughter,
