A fine day to do some finishing

Well the weather here in Minnesota is snowing and blowing, so it is a good day to stay in and get some finishing done.

My major project of late has been a Christmas stocking for my grandson. I finally finished stitching it last night and today I made it into a stocking.

I am quite excited about that. I have not been able to stitch any "smalls" or finish off some of the smalls I have stitched. I plan on doing some of that tonight and this week.

Here is a picture of the finished stocking.

I also wanted to make an origami ort bag, here is the result of that.

Now I am going to enjoy sitting in front of the fire and stitch and watch a movie. Who cares how cold it is outside!!

Until next time, keep stitching.

Joan,
Very nice. It is a great day to stay and stitch or finish and stitch and whatever. I could handle several of these. Once again great job.

That stocking is adorable. I especially like the train tracks along the bottom edge. Very cute!!
