WIP Wednesday – Christmas and Halloween

Hello again, Stitchy Friends! Thank you so much for the warm welcome back to the world of blogging. I’m very sorry that some of you were worried. I didn’t intend for my break to be so long. As usual, the days somehow slipped away and before I knew it over two months had passed.

Today I thought I’d show some of what I’ve been working on. Longtime readers may remember that I’ve been stitching stockings for my family members (my parents, my son, my husband, and myself). I’m currently working on the last one (yay!), which is for my husband. Here’s my progress so far:

The design is Candy Cane Stocking, designed by Dimensions. I’m stitching it with all the materials included in the kit and I think it is turning out great! I’m so happy I’m finally past the halfway point. I feel pretty confident that I’ll have it done in time. My goal is December 1st, but my absolute deadline is obviously Christmas Eve.

I’m also in a Halloween mood (when aren’t I?), so I’m working on a little project with my embroidery machine. I’ve only got a few panels done so far, but when I get the time it will be assembled into a really cool layered design. (Check it out here.)

I’ve also got some pretty cool Cricut projects on the go, but right now they are just piles of paper which isn’t at all interesting to look at. I’ll share them soon though, along with a look at my newest craft room tool. (Check out my Instagram for a sneak peek!)
