Even More Santa

It has been a little while since I shared my progress on Santa’s Journey Stocking. It is going well, but not as quickly as I had intended.

I’m very happy with how it looks, and I am very excited about finishing it. But, I had hoped to have it done by now and to have moved on to the stocking for my dad. :/ I’m a little disappointed with myself for not working more quickly. I’ve been far too sidetracked by smaller designs. I think “Oh, that will be quick to stitch. It will hardly take any time away from the stocking.” And, while that is true, after doing so many of them, it adds up to a lot of time away from the stocking.

Which small designs am I talking about? I will share one tomorrow. 😉

    I think it looks great. I’m currently working on a stocking for my step-grandson and it’s taking longer than I anticipated, too….

    The stocking is looking great. I know exactly what you mean about many small designs adding up to a lot of time off the main project.
