Shepherds Bush Stockings

When packing away our Christmas decorations, I thought I should get some pics of the stockings I stitched for our girls some years back. I love Shepherds Bush designs and their stockings are some of my favourites. These are Mary's Stocking on the left and Elisabeth's Stocking on the right.

The bead/charm packs that you can get for these patterns are so sweet, with lots of cute charms and buttons to bring the stitching to life. These were lots of fun to stitch and one day I would like to make one each for my husband and myself. I finished these up myself, lots of trial and error, it's not something I have ever tried before. That is something I hope to improve at - I really enjoy stitching, but am not at all competent at actually finishing the stitching into 'something'. Lucky there is so much fabulous inspiration out there in blogland!

We are enjoying some sunny, warm weather here at the moment, though it is long overdue, up till the last week or so, this would be the worst summer we have had for a very long time. We have had almost continual rain in December and most of January, so we are quite behind with a lot of our tractor work, these last few days have seen lots of action around the farm. Hopefully there will still be some time for a little stitching........

Gorgeous stockings, I love the colours and the detailing. I made Anna's stocking earlier this year for my baby girl and am just about to start making it up! I too am not so handy with the finishing up of stitching projects and am a little apprehensive
