Stocking Update

I finished the top of the stocking and since I had to wind it up onto the top bar, I decided to unroll the whole stocking to see how the how much progress has really been made. This was taken on Wednesday May 19th. This is about 2/3s completed.

This pictures is from last night and this is what I finished over the weekend, the letters and the start of another vine. As you can see by the green stitches I have started the work on the toe area. I'm very pleased with my progress.

I made this stocking once for a college friend's daughter. I made two more in that series for her sons. They are so pretty.

Hi Lisa,
Thanks for stopping by, this is the 7th stocking I have made from Mary Beale's collection.

Your work is beautiful. What a lovely tradition to make one for everyone in your family and even more amazing -- for the people who marry in. So nice! Can't wait to see it completed.
