I promised to show you my finish! Why a Christmas stocking in May? Well, this is what happens. I love Christmas. In October I get out my Christmas books and patterns and start browsing through them to find wonderful things to make for gifts and for our home. I get so inspired by this activity and plan plenty of projects to make. In fact, I plan so many projects that I cannot possibly hope to finish them all. Hence the Christmas finish in May!!! I will also admit that I have a few more Christmas WIP's to complete, so you will probably see a few more during the next few months.
I must apologize for the crummy picture. It is 10.27 pm and of course not the best time of the day to take photo's. The stocking is needle punched. I love needle punch. I quilted up to the stocking with free motion quilting. It is a cute, easy little project and a good one to make for gifts. I found the pattern to this stocking in a Christmas "Create and Decorate" magazine. I lengthened the pile on the stocking cuff to make it more dimensional.
I hope you have a wonderful week, and thank you for stopping by for a visit!
