Done!

I am proud to present Evan's Christmas stocking:

It's not perfect but I'm calling it done.

I lined it so it would be sturdier.

 I wish the hand stitching on the joining of the front and back was more even.

 I would have sewn it by machine but the attachments to the front of the stocking prevented that.

  It will sparkle in the lights from the Christmas tree.  I stuffed the star with Evan's name more like an ornament.

 I hope DS#2 and DIL like it.  It will go with Claire's stocking since hers is a felt one that I made also.

I'm glad to clean up the pile of stuff I was using to make the stocking.  Now on to other things.
It is a rainy Thursday here.  I had to walk at the Y.  I'm getting excited about my next conference at Winterthur.  I got a supply list for one of the workshops today.  I don't know what the we are making in that workshop.  I only know it is called Ann Flower's Pincushion.  I'm hoping to visit The Strawberry Sampler on my way.
