When I am feeling sad and upset, I find it really helps if I make some Angel dolls.
This week has been a corker, with the death of our beloved old horse, among other challenges.
We have done a whole lot of soul searching, and have decided that we just can’t handle having horses anymore. So our dear little girl horse that we adopted a year and a half ago is going to go back to live with her momma and birth brother. She’s going to be well and truly loved and cared for.
This has been one of the hardest decisions we’ve had to make in a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time, so believe me, I really have been needing to find comfort. (And yes, I certainly do pray, and meditate, so those are the source of great comfort, but making angels is also a HUGE comfort.)
So, in the interests of invoking Angel Energy for ourselves and for everyone else, too…
I have designed these sweet little, easy to make spool knitted angels.
I began with a design that I had developed a few years back and have re-fined and polished it. I am really happy with it now.
You can make the little angels very quickly and easily and can make them truly one of a kind by changing the yarn (handspun would be perfect)
and whether or not you add buttons for the face,
or add loops or other kinds of hair…..
I also like to stitch a pin to the back of the Angel, so I can pin it on my lapel, or scarf, or shawl, or bag, or hat….
I need to make a bunch more so I can send them and give them to friends and relations….
The more Angels there are, in every way, the better it is!

My condolences on your loss, Noreen and Jim.
I’m with you regarding the angels. The more we have around us, the better!
Thank you so much, Eileen.
I really appreciate your kindness.
And, yes…. I think the planet needs all the angelic help we can summon!
