Christmas Stockings #15 & Herb Garden #1

Here is what I managed to get completely finished off last week whilst recovering from wisdom tooth removal...

Quite pleased with these stockings. Now I've got 19 finished and 11 still to go. I have enjoyed making these stockings quite alot.

And now for something not stitching related, but I thought I'd share it with you anyway... We had a planter box built last year and have been waiting for the hot weather to finish before we planted some herbs to use in our cooking. Well, the heat has finally finished, so now we have two types of parsley, coriander, chives, basil, mint and chillies ready to grow and be used in the kitchen. We definitely do not have green thumbs so I hope we can keep them alive long enough for them to get established and start growing...
Please keep the English, Italian & French cross stitch magazine suggestions coming...Thanks!

Happy Stitching,


  1. Your stockings look lovely! I think herbs are pretty easy to look after so you will be fine!

  2. Love all the've done a great job!

    And the box with herbs is going to give you such pleasure...good luck!
