Christmas Stocking #3

Starting Christmas stocking #3. No I have not finished up #2 yet, but had to get the next one going. This stocking also is for a challenge on my CQ group CQI on Yahoo.

For January the challenge is "Piecing Curves" so I have added a few pieced curves into the stocking. February's challenge is "Working with Beads", so I will be adding beautiful bead treatments, which will be perfect making it sparkle like ice crystals, I hope. LOL.

The stocking size is 7 inches across the top, 11 inches at the toe and 15 1/2 inches tall.

The fabric collection and silkies are the January Treasury Club packet from
Evening Star Design. The collection also included 3 beautiful threads, beads and buttons. I did add in a couple of fabrics (the pinks, have to have pink some place, right?) also the laces are from my stash.

I don't know yet if the back will be pieced or velvet, both are pleasing to me (one being less work in the stitching department).

Today is football, I don't do football, but a group of friends are getting together for food, and the game......so I will take my stitching to help keep myself from getting bored.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

God Bless

Hi Gail,

That stocking is going to be really nice! Isn't it great to have something to do while you're watching TV or riding in the car?

I knew the pink wasn't in *my* package. LOL! Hope you had fun at the game party at the Paintrock. Maybe there's a stitching pic for tomorrow?
