Progress on the skinny stocking

It's been a while since I showed you a photo of my Sampler Stocking, so here it is in all its skinny glory. Such great colours...


My favourite bit so far is the bird. It's supposed to have a big red eye, but I thought that was spooky so I made the eye smaller and left it plain.


And here are the lord and lady - waiting for some grass to stand on.


All rather crumpled as usual - I really do hate ironing!

  1. It looks great, Nicki! I think we're at about the same spot, though I haven't worked on mine in several months. It's such a fun design. Have a great weekend!

  3. This is very pretty! There is a certain beauty that stitched birds have - I love them. The Lord and Lady are nice too!

  4. Looks great! I'm trying to imagine a big red eye on the bird, and just can't imagine it looking right. I think it was a good idea to make the changes you did.
    Ironing? Isn't that for after you've washed the piece at the end and not before? ;)

  9. Nicki - it looks fantastic! Now I know that I have to do this one soon. It just takes great pictures like this (and great stitching) to throw me over the edge! And hold the ironing until later - why iron more than once!

  18. I'd have to agree with you with the colours of the stocking, they're really scrummy! I have to admit it, I think red is quickly firming itself up as my 2nd favourite colour in stitching, I just love the richness of it :D
