My Little Angel ...

                 ... the UPS man delivered her back to me today!

I absolutely love her!       I stitched this little angel for one of my sweet nieces who will be making her First Communion soon. Jill Rensel did a beautiful job framing her. Jill is so talented ... as many of you already know! If you are not familiar with her work, give yourself a treat and click on  Rensel Studio  to see her latest works of art!

This is the first time I had something framed by Jill, although I have admired her work for some time. The local framers I used in the past have retired and closed their shop. I knew this would be the perfect piece for one of  Jill's creations! Jill was so wonderful and easy to work with and took such good care of my little angel ... I highly recommend her!

This pattern can be found on  Mirabilia Designs  website, just follow the link to the free designs.

Here are a couple more photos that show a closer view of Jill's beautiful work.

So I had a happy day! Funny how getting a project home from the framers can do wonders for the soul!  

Until next time ... enjoy your stitching!


  1. How gorgeous is that? Jill Rensel is amazing. I've had some of my pieces framed by her as well. She always does a fabulous job! And the way she packages the pieces to be shipped -- astounding!

  2. This is beautiful! I've got several SB band samplers framed with the Jill Rensel mats and I just love them. She is so talented.

    I love what Jill did with your piece. I've met her in person and she is a dear sweet woman. What a special piece!

  5. What a beautiful finish! The framing is just perfect and I know your niece will be happy to receive.

  6. What a beautiful finish Lanie. Jill did your beautiful stitching proud with that framing. It is wonderful!

  7. WOW! A wonderful gift to mark a very special occasion--certainly an heirloom. Jill did a beautiful job on the framing
