May - Stocking Update

This month, I finally finished embellishing the Christmas stocking I am making for my husband. 

I believe the Santa cross-stitch is from the book Alma Lynne's Country Cross-Stitch

Next month, I will be able to share this all sewn together. I hope to have at least one more finish to share at that time.

Here is a close up of the embellishments on the top of the stocking.

(I worried the bells were too bulky, but my husband likes them and I love the way the stocking will jingle.)

And a close up of the stitching at the bottom.

All your lovely bits have so brought out the colours and detail of the cross stitch design! I love the row of bells :)
