Angels playing happily… Free BOM part one!

Do you love angels?

How about stitching… do you love that too?

If the answer to both of those questions is a resounding YES… then I have a project that is designed especially for YOU!

Angels playing happily consists of two sweet angel stitchery blocks, three verse blocks, and instructions to create an angelic wall-hanging – complete with wings!

Please feel free to add my “Angels” button to the sidebar of your blog and link back to this post, so that others may pop on over and join in with the fun!

The first block is of this beary playful angel! While she snuggles in to her soft white cloud, her cute teddy swings about in the sweet fresh air!

The requirements list for this block is included in the download, and I will have a list of requirements available for the complete project in the next couple of weeks. I would advise, however, to purchase (or retrieve from your stash!) one fat quarter of cloud-themed fabric, or other background fabric of your choice. There will be two angel blocks both measuring 10in (25cm) square. But! If you enjoy this project, I might just create a second one, identical to the first but with different angel and verse blocks. We’ll see what you feel like doing at the close of this project, eh?!!

I absolutely LOVE angels! I also love fairies! The thought of them makes me feel so light and free, it fills me with excitement and wonder! Right now as I describe my feelings to you I feel like a little girl bursting at the seams to go outside and play!! Care to join me?!

I also have a free little stitchery design that you can find in my ‘free patterns’ tab at the top of my blog page. The drawing is of a wee baby angel asleep in a cloud, and it has been so popular. I’ve offered it as a freebie for the past couple of years and I’m still amazed at how many times this little drawing gets downloaded. I struck up a new friendship recently with a lovely lady called Diane, and she sent me a photo to share with you of how she used the stitchery in her ‘hanging heart’ project.

Diane is such a sweetheart! Such a kind and lovely lady, I’m sure glad that I met her!

On a final note, I thought I’d leave you with this photo of two of my little angels… otherwise known as “the girls”!!!

So cute, Vickie. Thank you so much. I am going to make this stitchery quilt for one of my sisters. Her name is Engelina. "Engel" stands for angel and I think she has been saving angels since she knew what an 'engel' is. She is now 55 years old (o:

First of all, thank you very much for the free stitchery free patterns you share with us.
Secondly, I'm not able to get the second pattern. The link says bad something. Appreciate if you can send me the Angels Happily.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
