Merry Christmas!

I stitched this stocking for Oliver for Christmas last year (?)... maybe it was for his first Christmas? I can't remember! Anyway it took many nights of stitching but then sat unfinished in my sewing box. It was my 9th item on my Joy in the New Year WIP's I wanted to complete. That leaves me with just one more!

 It's not as perfect as I wanted it for Ollie but I can always make another... Maybe. The back is "It's Snowing" by Deb Strain for Moda

The pattern for the cross stitch is "Harry" by Shepherds Bush.

I'm yet to finish Gus' one. Here's hoping I'll have it done for Christmas next year... Ollie's is all stuffed ready to go for tomorrow morning! It's the BIG family Christmas this year over at my DP's Nana's... Sit down meal for 30+ people! We helped set up the garage yesterday and I visited the local fresh market store this morning at 7am to buy the supplies for the starters.

Ollie and the DP have popped out this morning to buy my Christmas present. In true DP fashion. Every year he leaves it to Christmas Eve to get me something... last year he ordered me pot's online on Christmas Eve so he made me the sweetest PowerPoint Presentation for Christmas. LOL! I wonder what I'll get this year!!

Let the Christmas celebrations begin! All the gifts are wrapped and ready!

Merry Merry Christmas to you and your families!



  1. I have this chart to stitch for my son. Yours turned out beautifully!

  2. Yes my husband does the same. Leaves it till the last minute. He has not asked me this year what I might like so I am completely in the dark. Have a lovely day tomorrow. Gorgeous stocking by the way. Good things take time.
