What a cool New England fall morning. Just sitting here having some coffee waiting for my daughter to head of to school. Here are a couple more pictures of my finished "Winter Stocking". I named it that because it leaves me room for a Spring Summer and Fall stocking. It was fun going to "Joann Fabrics" and picking out fabric for the background. It might have taken me an hour but it was fun. Then there were the greens, well its fall and not to many stores have any winter greens or berries out yet, but I found some. Then the frame was a challenge too because I wanted a dark wood but didn't want to pay too much and it had to be big enough for the greens. So off I went to "Michaels" with my 50% off coupon. So here is the picture of my stocking.
I went to Yankee Cross Stitch and picked up my other models from last year of "Outline Christmas Art #1".
I have some fabric for those and plan on framing that stocking the same way. My "Christmas #1" has pomegranates in it and roses so I plan on hunting for some small dried pomegranates and old looking baby roses to put in it.I already have a plaid fabric with the same colors. I will post some pictures when its done.
Have a great day
