I made a list the other day of some of the crafts that I have that are currently in progress. Two of them just needed the finishing touches. The first is the pretty sweater that I knitted for my granddaughter. All that I needed to do was weave in a few ends and sew up the side seams. The pretty confetti yarn was something I found in my mother's knitting bag.
I also finished my daughter-in-law's Christmas stocking! I just needed to sit down and get on with it. It took me one whole morning to cut the fabric out and stitch the pieces together.
I like the fabric that I chose for the backing. It has the blue background with Santa and a snowman and a tree.
I chose a light blue snowflake lining fabric so that there was no chance of it showing through to the cross-stitch side.
I have been steadily working on my granddaughter's Christmas stocking. Santa is done now.
Speaking of my grandson, we visited CA last week for 5 days to meet him and lend a helping hand to the new parents. Here we are enjoying a cuddle. Isn't he adorable?!
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to. I know that I have plenty of slow stitching to keep me busy.
Thanks for stopping by!
