Want to make it? Awesome, here are the details.
Grab any old stocking, tons of floss, and your transfer pens.
Draw out the name and lights. Then start embroidering. Name is done with a chain stitch. Lights rope is a fabulous stem stitch. Last, the lights are done with a satin stitch, outlined with a back stitch. Just that easy.
With about 1 hour a day and two days total. I finished this one stocking. Now two more stockings to go. Post the finished product once they are all finished.

OK. So, I doing a Scentsy party for this Mom's Shop @ Home event. I had this dream that I had all of my stuff on this Beautiful white and purple tablecloth. Just went to the store and bought white and purple fabric. I am making this thing. Even if I have to stay up late, just so I can have it by Thursday. Let's see how this turns out. Hopefully as pretty as it was in my dream.

O.K. So, I have been working on making a pillow for my son. He loves sea turtles. I found this great printed fabric. Now I am embroidering it just for a more personal touch. In case you want to make your own and can't see the stitches here is how I did it. Outline of the shell is done with a chain stitch, inside with a back stitch, eyes are french knots. The waves I hand drew and are stitched with a stem stitch. I will post a picture of the actual finished pillow once it's done.
