It's Saturday night at midnight and I just finished it! I had to share immediately!
Come next weekend, I will go to the fabric store and pick out the loveliest dark red backing and a soft linen lining and take it to the talented Ms. Paige to be sewn into a stocking. I am absolutely over the moon that the recipient of this will have it for Christmas! It was a fun/frustrating/challenging/time consuming ride, and I loved almost every minute of it!
Henrik Roar, I hope you like this and one day hand it down to your own son.
My magic cloth for my next project hasn't arrived yet, so I may do a Mirabilia in the mean time. Rose of Sharon. I'm thinking of doing her in red, although I might play with some colors and see if I can do her in purples, deep purples with red roses. I'm going to the stitch'n'bitch tomorrow, so it will be a perfect time to play with colors.
Anyway, dear kindreds, I will post a final photo of this piece as soon as it is done. Thanks for keeping me company while I created this work of art!
