Stocking Sunday and an Easter finish

Last October I started a Shepherds Bush stocking for Hannah, the Anna design, and didn't get too far on it at all. So I've decided to start stitching on it on Sundays and Mondays each week.

before Sunday and Monday

after

I really enjoy doing these stockings, very easy and they stitch up so quick using the DMC pearl 5 threads. The fabric I'm using is 18ct natural floba.


With Easter now only a few weeks away now I've got several small Easter designs that I'd like to get stitched. This one had been kitted since early 2008 and I just didn't get around to any Easter stitching last year except for an exchange.

Happy Bunny Bunny Day -The Trilogy
stitched on 32ct mocha Belfast
Weeks, GAST and DMCs.

Last night I started another Christmas ornament, another freebie I found here, and I also finished a small design for a friend's birthday coming up. Its been a very productive week!
