Yay - it is finished, except for the outline of the stocking which I will do in white so it is not noticeable. Then I can go looking for a backing fabric and sew it together. I am very happy with how it has turned out and it was a super easy stocking to stitch - lots of fun.
Well, as far as an update goes, this isn't really one as I haven't touched the stocking for a couple of weeks. I've been working on my secret sewing project and it is coming along fantastically. Unfortunately, I can't post any pics yet in case the person it is for sees this. It will be worth the wait, I assure you.
On news related to the Stack of Critters stocking - the baby it is for has been born, early at 33 weeks. He is making good progress but will be in hospital for some time yet so if you can spare a prayer, please pray for his continued improvement. His name is Torvald.
The toe of the stocking is now done, back-stitching and all. Just one more critter on the top and that's about it until the baby is born and named! Got some more sewing done as well, working on my secret project. Happy Stitching, Kerrie
Got some back-stitching done and finished up the stocking toe last night - yay! I am also doing about 30mins per night on my latest secret sewing project which will be an awesome gift for someone lucky! Can't give too many details as it is a surprise for them. Happy Stitching, Kerrie
Hi Everyone, I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year with your family and friends! I have been busy over the last few weeks and have plenty to show for it, but since they are gifts for people who may read this blog, I can't upload the photos just yet... I have finished 2 lap quits - a fantastic car themed one for my nephew's 6th birthday in May and another for a birthday or Christmas present later in the year. I am super pleased with how they have turned out and will gladly upload some pics once they have been given. I am about to start out on my next patch working project - a surprise gift for someone who will love it - again I can't give too much away in case they read this but updates will be provided once they get the gift in a few months time. I can provide an update on Stack of Critters Stocking:
I have also made and filled a peg board in my sewing room and I am super pleased with it as well! It is now much fuller than when I took the photo.
