  3. When I first started to cross stitch, I subscribed to an american stitching magazine and did loads of these folk arty little characters so I have a real fondness for them Carole and this little angel is delightful. Your paper selection is perfect too. A dressing gown would surely cause a stir if you were to arrive wearing one!! Hope it goes well xx
