My First Finish of 2013

OK everyone I have been reading about every one's finishes and I was feeling a little left out. Since December I have been working on bigger WIP's, so I looked back and saw my last finish was November 16, 2012. 
I found a cute little Christmas Stocking on Pinterest. unfortunately the designer was not listed, but here it is.

There was a total of 750 stitches  plus backstitching

It only took me a couple of days to complete. I have not decided if I will finish it as a flat ornament or a stuffed ornament.
Now that I got that fix out of my system I will continue with Birds of a Feather by With thy Needle & Thread. All I have left on it is one and half sides of the boarder. So that should be my second finish this year.

In my last post I show a picture of my calender that I keep track of what I stitch and when I stitch. So far this month I have stitch ever day so far. LOL (it's only been 6 days) We will see how the rest of the month goes. My goal is to stitch everyday this month!
Well I need to read a few more blogs and get some chores done around the house.
Until next time
Happy Stitching
Denise

Love you header picture, your husband's shirt is just priceless. My daughter would give anything to be a farmer's wife.

Hi Denise! That stocking is lovely. It does seem to me that some people can stitch ten times faster than me. So when I do post about a finish of mine, many times I think, "Well it's about time!"
