Thanks to Feeling Stitchy - Another Stocking Done!

P1110938

Yaaaaay! I made it - just under the wire!

The second stocking I am giving away in the 2011 Christmas Stocking Giveaway is done!

I actually joined in the Feeling Stitchy August Stitch Along because I thought the deadline of end of August would help me bring this project to the front burner.

The fabric design is by Nadja Petremand and is part of her lovely "Noel en Russie" fabric available on Spoonflower. I did a bit of light machine quilting following the outline of the swirls, and hand quilting using gold thread on the little birds. A few silver beads added to the top edge and at the toe. A French knot here and there.

I am very happy with how it turned out and am happily gathering goodies to stuff into it so the winner can celebrate St. Nicholas Eve, St. Lucy Day, Solstice, and anything else I can think of!

Pop over to visit Nadja!  I just found some of the sweetest 'shroom fabrics in her Spoonflower shop.  And Red Riding Hood too! Adding at least a couple to my wish list!
