I was going to make a second reindeer stocking, but decided to try something a little different. So this time I adapted a pattern, that I already had in a kit, for a little nutcracker. I worked him in goldwork and attached him to the front of a quilted stocking. As with the last stocking, I embroidered the child’s name on the back in goldwork.

Unfortunately I was in such a rush to finish I forgot to take progress pictures – but here is the finished stocking….

And here is the back…..

It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas now (even though it is still early).

Thank you for popping in, happy stitching.
