Ah, it's lovely - certainly much MUCH better than meds!! Congratulations :)

This is beautiful Andrea! I have never even seen this design. Stitching is healthier than meds too!

Donna said...

Really, really pretty! Great job.

Gorgeous finish! I saw it, and immediately Googled the design, but alas, it is apparently out of print, as it was impossible to find. :( (insert sigh and poked out bottom lip)

I am really impressed with your Noah stocking. The picture on the chart really does not do this design justice. Your stitching is just beautiful. I've got the CHS Virtuous Woman stocking on order, and it will be my first stocking. I may let someone else do the finishing, though, as I can't sew a straight line to save my life. (Add another sigh here) ;)

I hope you have a great week.

Best Wishes,
Rebekka

Oh pretty! Great therapy stitching. Even if stitching isn't cheaper than meds, it sure is more fun.
