I ran out this evening to Walmart and (shock of all shocks) I was able to get everything on my list, including all of the DMC floss that I needed! I think that’s the first time I’ve ever gone anywhere and been able to get all of the DMC on my list. Wow.
Anyway, without any further adieu, here is Sharon Bennett (a.k.a. Daffycat)’s Stocking Reindeer:
You can’t see from the photo, but I did the cuff of the stocking in Wisper thread. And yes, folks, it’s Wisper, not Whisper. Just saying.
As for the finishing, I haven’t abandoned all hope… yet. I picked out backing fabrics for everything and picked up some ribbon at Walmart for ruching. Am I hopeful that I’ll get everything done before tomorrow night? Not in the least. Is it worth trying to at least get some of them done? Absolutely.
Oh wait, here’s a finish. The first time I’ve tried to do one like this and I’m not loving it, but hopefully someone else will.
