Angels we have heard on high Sweetly singing o’re the plains And the mountains in reply Echoing their joyous strains . . .
Detail view of angel face: pink flower sequin for mouth, beads for eyes and hair, hand-stitched face details.
Recent events have made me think about sweet little souls becoming angels too soon. To remember them and our loved ones, a paper-pieced angel pattern. The paper-pieced block is available as a download in our Pattern Library.
Wishing you the very, very best this holiday season! I’ll be hugging my grown sons far more today than they typically tolerate, but they’ll just have to put up with it!
p.s. I found a sweet, pared down rendition of Angels We Have Heard on High on YouTube. Billy Gilman is the singer–I wonder if his voice is as clear now that he’s in his twenties.
