So lifelike! You can almost hear the music pour forth from her fingertips. This lovely Celtic angel plucks notes from her lute, and seems completely lost in the song. Her wings are suffused by a golden glow that is simply heavenly. And just look at those magnificent Celtic knots on the hem of her gown! She may be in heaven, but it's clear she's dreaming of heaven-on-earth, on the Emerald Isle.
The Celtic Angel Cross Stitch Pattern is based on artwork by Bill Plank. The design measures 400 stitches wide by 534 stitches high. The cross stitch pattern spans 36 pages, and is printed double-sided, on unbound sheets in a clear plastic bag for protection. There is a color picture of the completed chart on the front page. The pattern itself is graphed in black and white symbols, and a table showing the DMC colors you'll need is included. This is a massive project that will provide you with many hours of enjoyment. It is not the best choice for beginners, but for the experienced stitcher, this will be an exciting challenge. Copyright - Heaven and Earth Designs, Inc.

How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
