Sledding Snowman Stocking #23


Second last tree finished - Final tree almost done! Just got to finish filling in the tree, back-stitch it and then some random snow flakes int he blank spaces and lastly, the name - and then it's done! Woo hoo - Have to start thinking about what to do next now! We have this Friday as a holiday for our footy Grand Final so I'm hoping the fabric store might be open so I can go and select a backing piece. The pattern comes with red felt, but I'm thinking something more pale green to match the aida - any thoughts...?
Happy Stitching,

Sledding Snowman Stocking #20

Only one and a half Christmas trees to go now - the end is in sight! This really has been so enjoyable to stitch. And I've recently found out someone else I have done a stocking for before is having another baby so I've got another stocking order to pick out too! It's never ending - lucky I love doing them so much!

Happy Stitching,

Sledding Snowman Stocking #19

The big patch of snow took me a couple of nights to fill in but that is a big section now done - yay! Here's a close-up:
I'm going to the movies tonight to see The Hitman's Bodyguard - so that looks interesting. And we've got a 2nd birthday for a friend on the weekend so that should be fun too. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy Stitching,

Sledding Snowman Stocking #18


I had a second post-op hydrodilatation today (cortisone injected into the shoulder). My surgeon is happy with my progress, but it is slow and that's frustrating for me. He says I have another month before I can complain about slow progress as it is usually about 3 months recovery time and I'm only at 2 months...

Stitching is still going well on this stocking though. It is such a happy design - makes me smile every time I pick it up.
Happy Stitching,
