Almost There!

I am back at working on this cross stitch Christmas stocking for my oldest child.  I have been working on this on and off for quite a few years and it is time to get it DONE!
 Before I started stitching on it again.
 I always find it so hard to actually see what has been done on one of these when someone posts a picture and I am sure it is the same with my picture.  BUT....ALL the cross stitches are done now.  YIPEE!!  Only the back stitching is left and I have been slowly working on that nightly, only allowing myself to get sidetracked occasionally :o)
 I think this picture show the best update from the last picture.  I have done a lot of back stitching so far and I think if I keep plugging along like I have been, it should be done in a couple of weeks.
 This puppy is just so cute!!
 And of course, Santa!!
Had to take a picture of the book I am reading.  This is kind of a strange book and I am anxiously awaiting to see how all the twists and turns will be ironed out.

Head over to Tami's and Ginny's for more works in progress.

That is a beautiful stocking!!! I am currently cross stitching a tree skirt. I have not posted pictures of it on my blog yet. This is just the motivation that I needed to unpack it, work on it, and take some photos. You do beautiful work!
