A stocking for Nancy

Photobucket


OK, so its not a huge stocking but here is what I stitched for Nancy its a Brightneedle stocking, which I stitched on 1/2 on 32ct fabric and changed all the colours of the threads so that they were warmer and not as pastel as I wanted a change to the original. I also added a crochet trim with ribbon running through as an alternative which I thought looked different and quite pretty. Nancy assures me that she loves it, which I am glad, as isn't it funny we always worry what the recipient will feel about our choices for them - I think we are all the same aren't we.

Mum, Dad and Helen have just rung to say they are more than halfway here this morning in readiness to get to the Christmas party, I had better get my camera and stitchy things ready before they arrive - Whatever your plans are for today I hope you have a good one!

Su, I love the exchange you had with Nancy - both ornaments are so lovely and perfectly finished.

And yes, you are right. It's always a little worry when you choose a design for an exchange partner, when you think about the colours and then about the finishing, until your exchnage piece has arrived and you can read and feel that you made the right choice. But it also adds to the excitement of an exchange, doesn't it?

Lovely stocking Su. The crochet trim really sets it off and I love your thread choices.

Enjoy the party!
