The Stockings Hung with Care...

Scott's StockingIt took me long enough, but after five years Scott's stocking is finally finished and made it to the mantle on Christmas Eve. I started the cross stitching on it in October 1999 thinking that I would have it finished for Christmas of that year. Ha! I made a good-faith effort, but it just couldn't even come close to happening that year. And since we weren't even engaged at that point, I joked that if something went awry with us that I would just insert some other name at the top so at least my work wouldn't have been for naught.

Last year I finished the stitching but I was too much the procastinator to stitch the backing on and truly complete it. I hate that part of any needlework project anyway, so in the end I got a fair amount of assistance from my mom just so it would be finished this year.

And so, I present a piece of work that I'm quite proud of and that I was delighted to finally give to mon amour. (I should mention that I took this photo today, when it was an unseasonably balmy 60 degrees here in Southeast Michigan.)
