Are they Angels?

My Angel quilt is coming along nicely. All assembled now and I am up to the stage of appliquéing stars along the border. I don’t do a lot of hand button hole stitch appliqué and I am finding this quite a nice soothing thing to do. Nearly there, just a few more fused stars to stitch down. Then I’ll see if I can find a nice toning green for a strip along the border of stars.

I reminded Robin that I am making this Angel quilt for our grand-daughter Emma. “For when she has a little girl of her own”, I told him. I’m not in too much hurry to finish it as she is still single and fancy free. “Are they Angels?”, he asked me, “I thought they were bugs”. Bugs indeed!!! Anyone can see that they are Angels. Can’t they?

Oh dear, bugs indeed. Your angels are just lovely and I'm sure that your Grand-daughter will recognise them and know that each one was stitched with love.

No, I don't think he was teasing. He really thought they were funny little bugs with wings and strange faces! Why on earth he would imagine I would spend all that time stitching bugs is beyond me.
