The first flock of my host of angels fluttered in this week with more, I'm told, already winging across the heavens as I write.
They have gathered to hover above my fireplace and have already gained admiration from all who have laid eyes on them.
I love that they are all such very different characters, a part of their creators. Thanks so much to all who took part in the fun and next year I plan to host another swap (but on a different theme), as so many bloggers are now really sorry they didn't participate having seen what they are missing.
In order of receipt....
Here's Neil's (of http://neelzexpressionz.blogspot.co.uk/) classy, stylish, slim line beauty,
named "Celestia", she is a Heavenly French Angel, Ooh, La, La! for elegance! Lovely techniques there Neil!
All the way from Canada here's Famfa's of busybutterfingers cute softy, in pretty, beautifully crocheted, swirly tutu and beaded limbs with a swirl of a halo above her golden locks!
Dusty by name but not by nature!
This dainty curly girly (a tiny Shroppy Lass) below was created by Jo Twiglet and is so pretty in her ribbons and starry skirt.
Named "Joy" and that's what Jo hopes she brings. She certainly has but I'll have to keep her out of reach of the real curly girlies!
I bet you didn't know there are angel bears around..... well, one flew in, see those dainty wings, from Shropshire courtesy of Annie Wipso who makes the cutest dumfed (felted) bears all with individual characters.
This one is called "Eolande" and her name means quite aptly "Violet".
My favourite colour and Annie's too.
Today this fabulous, quirky, felted and stitched angel character arrived from Chris of pearshapedcrafting. I think she's been singing in Chethams College in Manchester by the music on her wings.
It's thrilling that there are still more to fly in but, in the mean time, thanks again to all the talented creators of this little host of beauties.
