Something I have learned through writing for a magazine. . .it totally changes the way the seasons are celebrated at THE COUNTRY FARM HOME because of the deadlines that have to be made. . .When it’s 105 degrees outside, I’m setting up Christmas trees and wondering how to get snow outdoors in the very green grass. . .Or, when it’s the holidays, I’m working on a story and photos for the next Spring. . .Physically and mentally I have to be a season or two ahead. . .and so it is with these Delta Angels that will appear in the 2019 Holiday edition of COUNTRY RUSTIC MAGAZINE. . .
But. . .it occurred to me as I dressed and embellished the ones here, that they shouldn’t just be for Christmas. . .We need angels the year round, don’t we?
I plan to do the same with these smaller, ornamental angels. . .and to make them throughout the year for each season. . .The ones you see here are for the WINTER. . .before and after Christmas. . .Easily made. . .but I can’t divulged the how-to right now. . .The instructions will be out next Fall. . .This is just a little sneak peak to see what you think. . .
I will say that the materials used are chop sticks, wooden squares, socks, wool fabric, hemp string, ribbon, and embellishments. . .They take about ten minutes to complete one from scratch. . .and a good project for kids, too. . .If you personalize each one with a name, it will remind you of those you hold dear. . .
If you are very crafty, you can probably figure out how to make them yourself. . .or at least your version of it. . .If you’re not, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a while for instructions. . .but in the meantime, watch for each new one in my blogs as the 2019 SEASONS change. . .I hope they will inspire you. . .and will be a reminder of the real ANGELS that are truly with you each day of the year. . .
