I finally finished the crazy quilted Christmas stocking I was making for my husband. I believe the Santa cross-stitch is from the book Alma Lynne's Country Cross-Stitch.
I also made a pillowcase for my husband using the "roll up" or "burrito" method. I watched this YouTube video by The Crafty Gemini, but also followed this tutorial by The Seasoned Homemaker using French seams. Aside from my print being sideways, I love the way it turned out. (My husband will not mind, as he frequently turns his pillow sideways anyway.) Narelle, thank you for providing this blog. It really pushed me to finish a few things this month.
