Guardian Angel

I was looking around my house to see what finished pieces I have not shared with you and I believe that this is the last hanging piece I have to share.

She is Guardian Angel by Lavender and Lace.  I finished stitching her on September 4, 1993.  I added the Bible verse to the bottom.  This one hangs in the hallway right outside my bedroom door.  She is beautiful and I need to stitch more of the Lavender Lace patterns that I have squirrled away.

I finally had a few minutes to add some stamping to my nails this morning.  I had them painted a week ago and they were in desperate need of a top coat.

They have grown out a little since my manicure last week and the tips are a little worn, but that’s ok.  I try to keep my polish on for 2 weeks as I hate going without.  I haven’t stamped them in a while and really have been itching to add something fun.  They are not perfect as I hurried to get them done before taking youngest son to drivers education, but they look cool.  And they are good for another few days before I add another layer of top coat.  This one’s for you K. Marie. If you get a chance, visit her blog A Stitcher’s Stitchings.  She is a wonderful stitcher and she does her nails really cool, too.

  1. Oh she’s breathtaking. The ring border she has around her really gives it the little extra oomph.
    I loooove your nails!! I saw your post and thought “To heck with my uneven nails!! I’m going to paint them!!” So I threw a coat of polish on them and, hopefully, tomorrow I’ll have some time to stamp them. *fingers crossed* 😉


    1. Thanks K.Marie. I love the ring or roses around her as well.
      Yeah, I have a stubby nail that I broke way down below the tip and it’s finally growing out. Doesn’t it just feel good to have polish on? That extra barrier to help keep them a bit stronger. I hope you get some “stamping time”.


  2. Just heard that Marilyn Leavitt Imblum passed away yesterday. So sad because her designs (including this one) brought joy to so many. I have not completed any of her designs, but I think I have one in progress.


    1. I saw last night on Facebook that my LNS posted that she passed away. So sad. She will be missed. I have many of her designs, like Mirabilia’s, that I just haven’t stitched yet. I want to stitch Angel of Spring, soon.
