Stitching Updates

Hey everyone,
Not a whole lot of stuff going on up here. Just been busy with work and everyday things. Trying to take a little time each evening to stitch.
I finished this cute little primitive stocking, by Hands to work. I have had the chart for awhile and came across it the other night and decided to stitch it. I love that this chart came a small paper bag. Very cute packaging. Isn't the design sweet? It is supposed to be a Christmas ornament but its just too cute to use just for Christmas, Don't you think?? I love that it is small, I didn't stitch it as small as they recommended but I like it just the same. I finished it all by hand because I still have not taken my sewing machine out of its box. UGHH shame on me. Well, I kind of think it looks a bit more primitive done by hand.

I had to share this picture of someone really sweet and special. This is my daughter holding her new niece Gianna. Gianna is my dear friend Illeana's very first granddaughter. I know how thrilled she is after having a house full of boys. What a little doll, and look at that hair. I can't wait to see her and hold her myself in a couple weeks.

I love fabric trims of all kinds and I found these adorable vintage ones on ebay. Of course I don't know what I am going to use them for but I had to have them. I fell in love with that little russian doll trim and the lamb one too. I would love to find loads more like this.

Here is an update on some other stitching. I am hoping to finish the stitching that is left this weekend. Then I am going to find a really nice fabric to make it into a nice big pillow. What do you think? Something with pears maybe?? I think it would make a much better pillow then just being framed. The more I look at this design the more I like it, wouldn't it be great if I could find a patriotic pear design fabric?? I am going to start searching.

Well, time to get ready for work, so glad its Friday. Have a good day, I will post more this weekend.

I love your little stocking finish! And your Little by Little piece -- it's going to make a great pillow! The baby is adorable! Enjoy your weekend!

The baby is just the cutest!!! Your stocking is so sweet and your finishing is perfect. I think you could hang it out all year long - it doesn't look like it's just for Christmas.
