Voila!!! I finished Gracen's Christmas stocking that hangs at Nene and Gramps' house!!
The bow on the top left is made from a hanky that was my grandmother's. Loved the colors, and thought it would be a nice addition!.
For those that wondered - if you look at my last post you will see some "paper" pinned on the stocking. Well, I couldn't write Gracen's name on the burlap, so I wrote it on tracing paper, pinned it in place and then stitched through it. I was using DMC #5 Perle Cotton with a large needle, so it made big perforations in the paper. When I finished, I gently tore the tracing paper away and it worked wonderfully!
Another note of interest. A couple of people have asked about my name. Well I did a google search and found that there is an area in the Basque area of Spain (northern on the Bay of Biscay) that has a winery with my name but also there is a 70 ft fishing vessel which was constructed in that area and yep, you got it! It is named DONIENE!! I got this photo from the internet, and just had to show you! I'm not an ocean person - I've only seen the Gulf of Mexico one time, but this is one beautiful ship!!
Hope you and all yours have a Blessed Holiday Season filled with Love, Joy and Peace!!!
