Last SAL Update for 2020

i am thrilled to share my big happy dance! If it wasn’t for this SAL and my embroidery guild, I’m not sure this would have been completed this year!

Where I was at the last update:

And as of the day before Christmas:

Finished 12/23/2020
Closeup of the patch. I used a velour ribbon thread to hide the overlap piece.
My son chose the fabric for the back as well as the lining. The back is quilted in a simple hatch line 1.5 inches apart.
Two of the three that are complete now. The third is waiting to be opened until she gets home.

I was really happy to finally finish this project. I have a few more stockings to do but I am going to take a break from those for a little bit and choose something smaller. I haven’t decided what my next project will be but will be ready next time.

Please take a look at all the other talented stitchers taking part in this SAL:
