From the Realm of Glory


I haven't been stitching much this week because of too many assignments and I'll probably stitch even less the next 3 weeks because of finals. *Sigh*

I did get a bit more of Christmas Angel done.



This is at 18.5 hours. I didn't feel like stitching the white, and I can't find one of the blues, so there are some giant patches.

For the curious, and the gatherers of useless trivia:
So last time I mentioned that angels are asexual, only to be informed by Annie, that no, Jewish angels are usually males.

Today's angel fact: there are only 5 angels named in the Bible: Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, Apollyon or Abaddon (the keeper of the abyss) and Satan. Yes, Apollyon and Satan are devils, but technically they're fallen angels.

And if you're really obsessed about trivia: Apollyon is mentioned in Revelations 9:11.

Your angel is coming along beautifully! It is so hard to fit in stitching at this time of year for all of us, but it is such wonderful therapy.

Hope your finals all go well--what are you studying?

She is going to be fantastic, I've seen this one done.

wishing you luck on your finals.

She's coming along great. I remember my school days when all that pesky studying got in the way of fun projects. But it gives you something to look forward to.
