Stitch along update

For the last update, I stated that I hoped to have the Winking Santa Stocking finished for this update. This is where the Santa stocking was three weeks ago.

I shared in my post last week that Santa is finished! Happy Dance!

I have bought the featherweight fusible web to attach to the back of the stitching. 

I just have to choose the fabric to back it with. I think the fabric that came with it is quite ugly.

So what is next? Well, I have a granddaughter arriving at the end of August, so I will be stitching this birth announcement. It is "Woodland Babies" by Stoney Creek.


I have purchased the fabric and all of the necessary flosses that I didn't already have. I bought a box to keep the flosses neat for the project and then use for storage as my 2 other boxes are full. I am waiting on two DMC flosses that I ordered only as couldn't find them in any local craft store.

I can't wait to start work on this.
