Stocking Progess

I have been stitching on Hannah's stocking the past few nights and really enjoying it. This is the Anna stocking by Shepherd's Bush, which I started way back in October last year but its been a bit neglected ever since :)





There's something quite soothing in stitching with the pearl threads. Now the main part is done, all I have left is the stitching on the foot part of the pattern, stitch H's name on and then attach the charms. I can't decide whether to match the backing fabric for the stocking to the red of the angel's dress or to the green. Umm, decisions decisions. Any thoughts?
as always, thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day xx

Lovely colours...glad you are getting some stitching time lol!

Beautiful stitching :)
Saw quite a few of the SB stockings done up and on display at The Embroiderer here in Auckland thought they were stunning.

As for the backing, I say a fabric that is predominantly green but with red too; as a solid of either colour might be over much.

Oh I just love that. The red is gorgeous. Lovely!

I think I would go with a red backing fabric.

I love them too! I think I enjoy stitching stockings more than anything else at the moment.

So cute!

I would take the stocking to my favorite quilt shop and just see what fabric calls out to me...because even though I might have something in mind, something else that is even more perfect might pop out ;)

It's such a beautiful stocking stitched with beautiful colours. I think I'd go with Zeb's idea for the backing fabric.

Beautiful! As to the backing fabric...you'll know it when you see it. Something will jump out at you and it will be perfect.

Karoline said...

It's looking gorgeous, looking forward to seeing it completed

Melissa said...

You have done a beautiful job! Can't wait to see it all finished as a stocking. I finished my kids last year. Great job!

This is what I'm working on right now too. Stay tuned for photo updates. (You're way ahead of me!

I think red - it's more a Christmasy color than the green.

Hugs, Deb

Really pretty. I've done a couple of these stockings and working with the pearl cotten is a lot of fun. As far as backing, I'm kind of a red girl, but either color would look great!
