Enchanted Ornament Stocking - Finished & Stitching ABC #5

Judith and I had a great night at Craft Night on Friday. She helped me finish up the Enchanted Ornament Stocking, and, boy, does it look amazing. Way better than I was hoping for and definitely the best finished of all the stockings I've done (this is number 6). She had some blue fabric with a sparkle pattern that had been sitting in her cupboard for a couple of years - it was as if it had been made for this stocking - a perfect match! She helped me line the stocking too so stuff can be put inside it and won't catch on the threads. I am so pleased with it, I almost don't want to give it away, but it has Scarlet's name on it so I guess it must go to Scarlet!
 
When I first made the tassel, my first ever, it was about 3 times as long as it is in the photo and looked terrible. Once I snipped it off to match the pictured design, it looked so much better and is a real feature of the stocking now...
And here is the finished product. I'm very pleased with it and I am pretty sure little Scarlet and her family will love it too when I give it to her for her first Christmas later in the year.
All I can say is a HUGE THANK YOU to Judith for her assistance, guidance and extra supplies that she let me use.

On Saturday night, we had a family dinner at our place for Mother's Day which was great fun. On Sunday, I continued with the Stitching ABC and finished off the sewing machine and started on the rug below it.
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie
