K’s Christmas Stocking

Well…I didn’t finish in time for Christmas.  I guess I let myself get too distracted by other things :o(  My daughter is not disappointed, but I am.

Some progress on the bird and the flower.

I worked on the hat for a little bit.  Almost done with the bird and started the flower.

More progress.

More progress.

A little more time was spent.  Truly this is a slow and steady project!

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?!
