A Stitch For Me

Last weekend I participated in a SAL on Facebook. I started this, a Christmas stocking for me.


Have you ever done one of these SB stockings? They are stitched on 18ct. linen, over 2, with #5 pearl cotton. It is quite large but I love it. Now we aill all have stitched Christmas stockings here at my house. YAY! I finished the stitching today.





I don't usually get carried away with pictures, but I finally got a new camera so I had to play around a little. So far I am pleased.

Have a great week!

I think that it looks wonderful. I've always loved these stockings. I've made two of them, with the intention of making four. The two I did make still have not been sewn together. I should probably jump on that at some point! LOL
