Oh my, have I been stitching up a storm. I have stitched almost all the leaves on the tree for the birth announcement.
Each leaf consists of just two colors so it is nice and easy stitching. I often sit down and easily complete 100 stitches. I love all of the different shades of green.
I really want to start working on the Log Cabin Star quilt for my daughter again. With that in mind, I decided to clear up my sewing area and finish the Winking Santa Stocking. In my last post I shared the lining and backing fabrics that I had chosen.
I stayed with the red felt as the backing, but I had to change to a plain white fabric to line the stocking.
The little Christmas tree fabric that I originally shared showed through to the front of the stocking. I mostly followed the finishing directions by Vonna Pfeiffer, The Twisted Stitcher that you can find here. First I added the piping.
I love how the stocking turned out.
Finally, I have been adding stitches to October Morning. I finished the mailbox and another post of the fence.
On an personal note, Hubby and I celebrated 37 years of marriage on Thursday. We ate dinner at a local restaurant overlooking a pond.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
