Will's Stocking

There is nothing better than a phone call from a shop where you have left something to be finished and finding out that the item is in.  I had such a call on Tuesday while I was at work.  Of course this shop doesn't have evening hours so I had to wait until today to pick it up. 

So I waited for the shop to open and drove my self over there to pick it up. 

Will's Stocking Finished 8.14.10
So here it is, you have watched grow week by week.  I'm very happy with the finished project.  I have taken all of my stocking to the same shop to be finished since the very first one I made in 1990.  Attic Needlework  I'm not sure if it is the same person since the beginning but I have never had any complaints. 

Kierra's & Will's Stockings together.

This this stocking is for Kierra's husband I sent Kierra's stocking with the stitching so she can match fabric weight.  Here is a picture of the two stockings together.  Kierra's has a green background and Will's red so they look great together. 

The designer of the stockings is Mary Beale, this link takes you to the stocking samplers.  I have made #2 for Richard, #3 Krystal, #4 Kinsen, # 5 Will, #6 Klint, #7 Mary, and #9 Kierra.

At Christmas I'll post pictures of all the stockings.
