Angel Progress!

I really don't feel good about posting at the moment - the reason - our state of Victoria is in the grip of the worst bushfires ever! Breaking News is continually being broadcast on the tele and many lives are believed to have been lost - little children, too!

I'm sorry to talk about sadness and tragedy - I try to keep my posts bright, cheery and uplifting, but 'Black Sunday' news is overwhelming - thoughts and prayers are with you all over there and blessings to our courageous firefighters!


Last night I happily stitched Angels, 7, 8 and 9 - is this enough for a wallhanging with sashings and borders? - is the little one in the brown dress standing out too much?
I have set myself a goal to finish the top of this by the end of the month - seems realistic - I just have to decide whether to do more or not! I have used reproduction fabrics and have some more lovely ones to use - maybe I will carry on!
♥ ... Hugs ... ♥
PS - Whoopee - see the list on my sidbar - we now have 12 House Swappers - would love to see more - just click the button!

I don't think she stands out too much. Hard to tell with monitor colours, though. You never know how accurate they are. If you are worried, try moving the little green angel, bottom left, into the centre and see how that looks.
The whole hanging looks lovely. I'd sash it at this stage.

They're very sweet and a good size for a wallhanging with sashing. The brown one looks fine where she is.

Stephanie said...

Very sweet angels. I did hear about the fires on tonight's news. Sad.

GARI said...

The angels are lovely, just as they are.

Kathy said...

The fires are just tragic - if only it would rain! Your angels are beautiful. I didn't know exactly what you meant about one in brown standing out, so I guess the answer is no. It looks just fine the way it is.

Take care,
Susan

The angels are very cute and a little quilt of them would look very nice. I would think sashing so each is special on their own.
*hugs*

Mildred said...

The angel wall hanging is perfect as is. The fabrics are beautiful. I, too, have been following the news of the fire on the internet. My prayers are with the victims and firefighters.

Fiesta said...

Lurline sorry about the fires. Your Angel quilt is appropriate at this time. Maybe they will protect the people. You did a beautiful job on them.
Be well my friend.

I think the Angel with the brown dress looks fine. She doesn't stand out at all.

We've been reading about the terrible fired in the news. Such a tragedy. We're praying for all those affected.

Lurline our thoughts are with our Australian friends. I hope there are many guardian angels around to protect your part of the country for worse. Just saw the latest pictures in the news. Hope they catch whoever did this.
Hugs, Jossie
