With Thanksgiving being so late this year, Christmas will be right behind. I managed to finish the latest Christmas stocking this week.
When I do the cross stich stockings I like to use a fusible interfacing on the back to make sure that all of those stitches will stay in place over the years of use. As well, I like to line my Christmas stockings. Since this one had such a vintage feel to it, I found a fabric that also had a vintage feel to it.
This past week Kelly at I Have a Notion had a blog hop featuring Patsy Thompson’s embroidery designs. Kelly was doing the most beautiful table runner. Well…..I won the designs in her hop and I have been playing with them. I have stitched these out on silk and I love the way they have stitched out. The colors are a bit off, but I hope to get a better picture of them once I get the piece finished. Aren’t the feathers stunning?
My mom, sister and I went to visit the Reagan Library this week. They have a couple of new displays going on right now, one being famous cars from films, presidents and Heads of State. It was fun to see them up close. Here are a few of them.

In my quest to quilt my stack of finished tops, I have managed to get one more off the pile this week. The pile, however, still remains tall.
