I have finally finished the cross stitching element of Elisha’s Christmas stocking. It took a little longer than I had hoped as I ran out of one of the red threads and wasn’t able to go anywhere to buy some more until Friday. The gold backstitching seemed to take forever but it was certainly worth the effort. Next week I will search for some backing fabrics for both stockings and hopefully I can make a start on assembling them as proper stockings next weekend.
I’ll now give myself a break from Christmas stocking stitching now and who knows I might even get back to working on some of my long outstanding WIP’s. I have lots of Christmas paper crafting projects I need to work on over the coming weeks which will be fun – it’s great to have hobbies to while away the cold winter evenings.
