Christmas Stocking

Another fun stitching art that I enjoy immensely is cross stitch.  I made a very time consuming cross stitch Christmas Stocking for my oldest daughter last year and have been working on another one for the next oldest daughter.  I set it aside for a bit to work on various other projects, but have recently picked it up again to try to finish before Christmas this year.IMG_3200

This is how far I had gotten before I started stitching this afternoon.IMG_3201

I decided to work on this little bird – I like to finish different motif’s and then do the backstitching on them right away.  Since backstitching is NOT my favorite thing to do, I try to get as much done as I go as I can.IMG_3202

This is what the little bird looks like now after about an hour of stitching.  Not too much to go before I can backstitch him.  Isn’t he so cute?!
