2009/342: One Down…

… two more to go! Finally finished Nikki’s Christmas stocking yesterday. Too bad there’s no way that the other two will be finished by Christmas. Not even close!! Oh well, there’s always next year.

  2. Thanks! It took much longer than it should have. I think I started it back in June? But I did put it aside for about three months to stitch a baby quilt.

  3. Now We know what you’ve been up to instead of walking. 🙂
    It is a beautiful piece of needlework. I’m sure she will hold it in high esteem for many years.

  4. Nope, can’t use stitching as an excuse for not walking. It’s just been a busy couple of weeks, and kids have been sick, too.

  5. I have never quite understood the concept of Christmas stockings. I mean, it is no stranger than the concept of toys in shoes from Venezuela, yet…how come? Who was the one that decided, “Hey, its gotta be fun to jam kids toes by sticking lumps of coal or ipods into their shoes/stockings.”

  8. It’s beautiful! You’re not alone, it took me a couple of years to finish stockings for the family too.

  9. It’s so pretty! I’m sure she’ll love it now because of that, and cherish it later because it was made by someone special.

    That’s gorgeous Michaela! I love how bright and vibrant it is. And, of course, how much love and time was put into making it!
