I finally finished Erin's Christmas Stocking. I have always made stockings for all my family members but the others (14 of them) have been in counted cross stitch. I just can't do those any longer. My hands and eyes just are not what they use to be. So this is the first machine embroidered Christmas Stocking I have made. I sure hope they like it. Not as detailed as the counted cross stitch but I tried. I think it turned out okay for my first. I displayed it next to my DH stocking so you can see the difference. Do you think it will be okay? I sure hope so.

No, Erin's is not cross stitch. I have only digitized a few pieces in cross stitch so I didn't think I had better attempt it for her stocking since it needed to be done for her first Christmas. I digitized the fireplace and had to clean up or redo a lot of the other designs as they were freebies. Been working on it since they told me they were expecting. She was born in April so it has been quit a project.

What a darling Christmas scene!! I think she will just love it! You know, the counted cross stitch is so gorgeous and intricate, a real work of art. But, the Mommy probably appreciates it more than the child does. Erin will adore her stocking with that happy scene, and know that YOU made it just for her. Kids don't count the stitches, or see any flaws. They just get bug eyed and say, "For ME?" Your placement of all the elements is wonderful, surely more trouble than I would go thru! Anyone would be glad to have it!! Hugs, Marji

Oh, thank you Marji that means a lot because I worked so hard on designing and digitizing some of the designs. It took 3 hours to just stitch the fireplace, Mrs. Claus and Chair! It was too many stiches for my card so I had to make holes in the fireplace, stitch it and then go back and insert the chair and Mrs. Claus. Boy was I NERVOUS I wouldn't get it lined up right. Said a little pray before starting. :) Each of the other sections I stitched maybe one a night after work. What a project! But will mean a lot to my son.
