Destiny's Christmas Stocking

Oh my how time does fly, I would have though it only 2 days since I last posted, but alas that is not the case.

I have begun work on my granddaughters Christmas stocking. Below you will find a repost of the pieced stocking. Here is the centerpiece of the stocking. A beautiful silkie of a young woman in pink, to frame it I used detach chain stitch with french knots at the base and a spider rose. The seam treatment to the right is ric rac, with Sassa Lynne thread for the herringbone stitch, straight stitch and french knots. More on the other seams next time.

I like the use of a non-traditional Christmas color. The pink and red look great together.

It's gorgeous, of course! I love that you do the more extensive, complicated seam treatments. I'm too lazy most of the time. =)

This is perfect for her.
