My 2020 hand sewing project was a Christmas stocking for our precious new grandson. His parents selected the pattern and I'm thrilled to report that it was finished before Santa's arrival. I have made cross stitched stockings for everyone in my family, my nieces and nephew and now both grandsons.
The pattern is Twas the Night Before Christmas, a Sandy Orton design by Kooler Design Studios. The pattern instructions include half and quarter stitches, mixed flosses (and various thread counts), metallic threads and oodles of outlining.
A fun dog Christmas fabric for the backing seemed necessary for this animal loving family.
Nana loves you Milo!
