Quietly, discreetly, in the stealth of night some angel wings have emerged from their cocoon in the small of my hand.

They have emerged as I have, out from the blues to say thank you all for your sweet, kind words which have really touched me xox

These have been hooked up using a 3.5mm hook with Debbie Bliss cotton found in my stash using the fab tutorial entitled "How to crochet angel wings" {beautiful title in itself} on Kate's lovely blog Greedy for colour found here

I think some teeny tiny wings may very well need to emerge from the angel cocoon hiding in my teapot xox
Where have you got angels hiding?


  1. I think I need to see angel wings at work, looking over all those precious babies. What a lovely idea.

  2. I couldn't be more thrilled that you made the angel wings - and you did the most beautiful job!!!! As someone who also suffers from bouts of depression, I love your honesty - you are not alone in it. Now you have me inspired make more angel wings. Lots of love, Kate (from greedy for colour) xxooxxooxx.

  3. Hi Penelope... precious little angel wings... and lovely to hear that you are feeling a little better..HOORAY! :)x

  4. So happy to hear you are feeling so much better, I wonder if the angel wings helped a little...... Perhaps they wrapped around you whilst you were sleeping and gave you some comfort.....perhaps :)

  5. They are so beautiful, glad you are feeling so much better xxx

  6. I was just browsing around the blogging world, and stumbled upon your blog. It's wonderful!!! I love your photos and lovely words, and your angel wings (or course)!!! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I'll definitely be visiting again....

  7. Oh Penelope, how sweet are they! I'm so glad you're feeling less blue. Taking time out for a bit of blog therapy and a crafty boost is always a good thing.

    Looking about the place, which seems to have descended into chaos recently, I think I probably have junk fairies, the proper sort have surely moved on ;D

  8. Beautiful angel wings......you are so creative!

  9. Gorgeous, I think I have nailed (basic) knitting, crochet is next! I'm saving these links :)

  10. Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading your comment on Annie's blog.
    Love your Ripple throw.

  11. And a great thank you, too ! :-)
    Although I hadn't responded, I've been following your blog for a while yet.. and if it weren't for your blog I'd probably never heard of Shawn Colvin... *blushes* .. but I love it ! ( so I probably won't need to start blogging myself as therapy now..lol.. )
