Angel in Tutsi ? or Cone ?

When sommer was still here, A priest wisited my shop, to ask if I would make
an angel in a cone to use for Advent, when telling the christmas evangelium, for
the children in church. I ofcourse was happy to recieve such an order, and as
December aproaching I started the project.

Here I have finished modeling the face in wooddust, painted it,and giwing her hair

Almost finished in her white dress, and a little cross

Hiding a bit in her brown suede cone, with golden stars

And then taking a full wiew on the world

Her wings are ca. 1/2 meter wide, made in white material, and almost cowered
in feathers, her hands are holding tight to the cone.
I hope the children will love her, when she tells the story
about the birth of Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow my two sweet grandchildren comes all the way from Copenhagen,
to stay here with us for the autumn holliday without their
I`m loooking very much forward seing them ,and having lots of fun in
the week to come------only I guess blogging is going to rest till next week-end.
So till then I wish everyone a great week.
XOXO Dorthe

Beautiful angel Dorthe - så spændende en opgave at få og så aldeles dejlig ser hun ud, jeg har lavet en del dukker i træmasse og har nogle hoveder, arme og fødder der ligger og venter på at blive til dukker(det har de nu gjort i 8 år) får helt lyst til at finde kassen frem, hvor herligt at du har børnebørnene i en uge, akønt og selvfølgelig trættende, vi er jo blevet lidt ældre siden vores børn var små, håber du får en rigtig hyggelig uge.
De kærligste hilsner Anni
