2009 Christmas Finish

Christmas stocking Variation
BH & G Christmas Cross Stitch Heartfelt Holidays book
DMC floss and misc stash beads

Here is DH's Christmas stocking. We have been using plain red felt stocking since we were married. Last year I decided it was time to upgrade our stockings. (I am still picking a design for mine--everytime I think I have decided, I change my mind :)

Let me know your favorite stocking designs. I need to make up my mind soon if I want it ready for NEXT year! :)

I love this stocking! Very, very pretty. I am partial to the Shepherd's Bush stockings myself. So many to choose from, and all so lovely.

The stocking is great. I don't have a favorite stocking yet. I have the same problem you do. I find one I think I like then something "better" comes along.

Love your stocking finish! My favorite series of stockings is still the heirloom ones that were in Cross Stitch and Country Crafts back in the 80s and 90s. They were all published together in a Better Homes and Gardens book that's still available. The last time I looked, Silver Needle had it at a reasonable price.
