BLESSINGS FROM CHERUBS
Cherubs are considered as members of the second order of angels, whose distinctive gift is knowledge, often represented as a winged child or winged head of a child..Here i have uploaded the pictures of three cherubs, i have cross stitched on off white aida.. A cherub sending a dove representing peace, another one bestowing the earth with rain and the third one playing a harp...They all looked so dainty in the pictures that i could not wait any longer to get them stitched and framed.Some beads are also used in the designs. Blue rice beads represent the cloud burst.They are also used to decorate the edges of the cherub's dress and the head ornament. Metallic threads have been used to depict the strings of the harp..Some metallic strands are also used to stitch the rain bowl.
