Snow Stocking is Complete!
She is done! Now all I need to do is purchase some fabric and get her sewn, which I will ask my friend to do, as she did such a beautiful job when she sewed the Treasure Dragon stocking, AND the Yule Fairy stocking. I plan on finding a grey satin fabric for her back, and if I can find piping with some silver in it, perfect, but I think I may have to be happy with plain old white. I'll be sure to post photo's when she is all sewn..
This was a pretty fast stitch. I started her in March, 2016, and finished today, January 2017.
And now for the big announcement for my next project - although you may have guessed, as I've already got a photo and a status bar up, but the next project will be Meeting on the Turret Stairs (Mini) by Fredrick William Burton.
I've never done a mini before, so I'm interested to see what, if any, detail is lost. If it turns out well, then the goal is to do a mini and a regular size and toggle between the two. (Just wait and see what I have on deck for the replacement of Adrift. She's everso pretty!)
Oh, and my Lowry came! Oh my god, I love that stand! It's brilliant! A little easier to maneuver than the K's Creation and I find I don't need to tighten as hard to get the Q-snap to stay. This company was brilliant and the stand came on Thursday last week. So super quick shipping too!
Well, that's it. I'm officially announcemented out. I hope to have Adrift finished some time in February.
I'll see you all after my cruise.
