I am very pleased with my stitching progress over the weekend. Didn't get any stitching done on Friday as I saw The Dressmaker movie - I haven't read the book so I had no idea what was going on. It started off almost like a comedy then it got dark and people started dying and it was all just a bit weird for me.
On Saturday, I trimmed a neighbour's overhanging tree and used muscles I never knew I had. They let themselves be known on Sunday night - boy, was I in agony! I brought out the Deep Heat cream which made my husband disappear as it stinks, but it did help.
Here is the next stocking I'm doing: Santa's Journey
Despite my muscle troubles, I made a good start on the next Christmas Stocking. This is for a work colleague's first baby which is due around May next year. It's a bit hard to tell, but this is the middle bit of the pattern. There are beautiful gold beads to stitch on, and I've already used gold threads to give it a sparkle. These Dimensions stocking are very involved but the effort is so worth it when the finished product is produced.
Giveaway: No one was interested in my pattern give away this week, so I've decided to put a hold on it for a little while and start giving them away again next year.
Jen, I'm still waiting for your postal address for the previous giveaway. Please email it to xstitchlibrarian[at]gmail.com
