The End is In Sight!

Hello, Stitchy Friends! I’m sorry I disappeared for so long. The day after my last post I came down with what turned out to be an awful sinus infection. I spent many days in bed or suffering (not so) silently on the sofa. But, I’m almost back to normal, except for a slightly numb nose. (I managed to tweak a nerve thanks to my tmj issues… If it isn’t one thing, it’s another.)

Good news, though! I’m very, very close to finishing the stitching on Santa’s Journey Stocking! Yay!!

It is looking pretty good, isn’t it? I still have some work to do on the cuff, but it is mostly mindless fill in stitching. After that, I have piles of couching (more than I thought), and some back stitching and then it is all done. Yay!! This journey has been going on far too long–I started the stocking at the very, very end of 2012 and here it is the middle of August 2015. I hope the remaining three stockings don’t take as long…

Reminder – This month’s Smalls SAL check-in takes place on August 26th. That’s just a little over a week away. Believe or not, I managed to stitch up my small already. How are you doing on yours?
