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.
