UFO Stocking – finished

As if I do not have enough UFOs of my own, I was given the unadorned front of my DD1s Christmas stocking when SHE de-stashed.

Earlier this week I came across it and couldn’t resist completing and returning it to her.

Cath received it yesterday and liked it.  I added bits and pieces we both made over the years so it was like an ‘I spy’ .  I forgot to measure it exactly but it is over 20 inches.

  5. Wow, you finished it that quick?? It’s beautiful, I can’t believe all the exquiste stitches that went into this in such a short time.

  6. Maureen, this is amazing . You have made it really xmassy with the stars and colours. Love the ribbon embroidery on it as well. A real family heirloom. I like the boot shape too.

  7. Thanks everyone for the comments. They are really appreciated.

    Shirley Catherine had cut the shape and added all the CQ fabrics and I took over from there. I had wondered how the shallow foot would look when stitched but it looks great.

  8. Maureen, this stocking is gorgeous!!!! Cath will have a lovely heirloom to treasure for Christmas – bet it was a pleasant surprise for her, after having started it so long ago. xxx

  9. This is a beauty and will be treasured for years!!
