It's done. It's really done!


I spent Sunday afternoon and lunch break on Monday finishing this.  Can you believe it's really done?  I can't!  Off to the finishers.

    It may have been a slightly old picture - but just in case - in the picture of the elf (just below the tree pic) he has a small unstitched area of leg. Grab him back and fill him in!!! Gorgeous work - so much detail.

  6. Hi Steph,
    Fabulous stocking. You are really stitching up a storm. Cannot wait to see the stocking hanging up for Christmas.
    Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks.

    1. Thanks! I have been stitching up a storm. Nothing like a couple of big finishes to get those needles flying!

    1. Thanks! Amy and Rebecca deserve so much credit. It was so fun to stitch even if I did take 2yrs to do it!

  8. Brava, Stephanie! It's been fun watching the progression! I just love
    the Antlers of Memory thread. Totes Adorbs! as my 12 yr. old daughter,
    Grace would say! If it took you 2 years, I would never even begin to
    attempt a stocking! I did Applique-work for out first set, and hung little needlepoint ornaments with their initials on them from a big button, and Wool Felt Applique for our 2nd set!(I LOVE Stockings!)
    Congrats!

    PS. I am thinking on your pear expansion suggestion...shoot me an e-mail with more thoughts!

  14. Thank you, one and all. It was actually three years in the making. OOPS! One of the many downsides of menopause, memory failure. I hope my girl has been good so we can fill this up. xoxo Steph
