Santa’s Journey Stocking Update

Well, it is August 4th. Do you think I managed to finish Santa’s Journey Stocking?

No… But I did make some pretty good progress. I just have the stitching in the toe area to finish and the cuff. I’ve already charted out my mom’s name, so I’m all ready to get started on it. After that, there is a relatively small amount of back stitching, a few beads, and some french knots (which I will do as colonial knots).

My revised timeline is to have the stitching done by the end of September, barring any unexpected projects or mistakes.

rcrossstitchDaily Cross Stitch and Reddit – Reddit tends to get a bad rap, but there are actually some really great sub-groups (known as sub-Reddits) including r/CrossStitch. For the next several months r/CrossStitch is teaming up with various designers to offer free charts, giveaways and other goodies. This month they are featuring Daily Cross Stitch. You can find out all about it here. If you like Daily Cross Stitch be sure to check it out!

    Great progress on your Mum’s stocking.

    I’ve not visited Reddit, I used to go on a few forums before I discovered blogging. Then FB became the thing and now it seems like it’s coming full circle to forums again!
