This is a Christmas stocking that I started for my daughter. Her original stocking was done completely in Paternayan wool with some straight gobelin stitches as my first effort at decorative stitching. That was nearly 18 years ago and I like to think that I have improved somewhat in the years since. Hence, the latest effort. This a Rebecca Wood stocking which I believe is called The North Pole. I bought it at The Needleworks here in Austn. The stitch guide is by Amy Bunger of Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis, Tennessee.
