I finished this stitchery on linen at least four or five years ago but never got it framed or made into a wallhanging.
The stitching just added is my initials. I've offered this to my mom to give to a friend. I used an alphabet book I've had for many years and used often, a Leisure Arts Mini Series leaflet called 20 Backstitch Alphabets (published in 1985!).
The winner of my birthday giveaway, Vivian, chose her husband's name for the second stocking and I got their names stitched, from the same alphabet leaflet.
Auditioning fabrics for this soon to be pillow. This is another cross-stitch I finished four or five years ago. I added my initials after I took the photo. I'm leaning towards framing it in the green on the far left.
Don't know if you can tell, but these were decorator sample swatches from Joanne's Fabrics that I bought for $1.99. They are perfect for pillow backs. So far I favor the yellow, which has a nice ribbed texture.
