Skulls and Angels

When I first discovered Urban Threads this is one of the first designs I stitched. All those tiny beads which I decided to use to make up the skull took a while but I like the effect they give. I made it into a cushion for my hairdresser. Luckily she liked it or else I could have ended up with a wonky haircut. The envelope style back is made from red spot fabric. If you'd like to make your own there are lots of professions to choose from the designs ready to download.

And remember the angel wings well here is the angel they now belong to.

She is from the Tilda's Christmas Ideas book. I really enjoyed making her and you can be sure you'll be seeing more ideas from this book.  
Whilst I've enjoyed this phase of sewing I really miss scrapbooking but there are only so many hours in the day but I'll be back to a bit of papercrafting soon as I've got to make some Autumn tags for the monthly swap on UKS.

Aha! I should have guessed she was a Tilda! She's lovely. It's so hard to fit it all in, isn't it? My scrapbooking is taking a bit of a back seat at the moment too - and I never thought I would be saying that!

Your cushion is fabulous

She's so gorgeous ... I so love anything Tilda :) ... don't worry, you can always go back to scrapping later, all crafting is fun, no matter what it is.

She is just gorgeous! I love her ... There is something wonderfully accepting and homely about her face that says "I'm not a superior angel who has got it all sorted. I'm the kind who will come and sit happily in your kitchen." A triumph! :)

I love the cushion it's fab and I keep drooling over the Tilda stuff but haven't bought any yet.
