That Christmas Stocking!

I have been working on this stocking almost every night and it feels like there has been almost no progress at all :o(  Good thing I am not really minding the backstitch so much anymore.
 This is the last picture I took.
 This is what it looks like now.  I think you might need a magnifying glass to see the difference!
The new book I am immersed in right now.  I can't seem to put it down!

More good things at Tami's and Ginny's :o)

Wow, it looks amazing. Its a legit work of art and I am so jealous of it... I couldn't imagine all the time it took to do that much of it... I can't say enough good things about it.

Comparing your two photos reminds me of those puzzle games where you have to find what's missing. :-D I can definitely see the progress. This is a very detailed and beautiful project!

It looks gorgeous :) But then I am a sucker for handmade stockings!

Beautiful! I made needlepoint stockings for my parents one year: Dad got a stocking filled with stuffers and Mom got a box of stuffers and a promisory note. Just FYI - they were both thrilled. Hang in there! They're totally worth it!

That is gorgeous!

We have a gal at my local SnB that needlepoints stockings, too. I have to hand it to you both...you're really talented.

Beautiful stocking, I've considered trying one but haven't found "the" one yet.
