Three Cross-stitched Christmas Stockings

My biggest accomplishment so far. For Christmas, I finished three stockings for my husband and daughters, all cross-stitched on 28 count linen.

The designs are by Karen Kluba, Rosewood Manor, and a brilliant seamstress in Iowa, Marilyn Klanin, sewed these perfectly into lined and trimmed stockings with material I provided. The backings are coordinating upholstery fabrics I selected, and the lining is a pale cream 100% cotton muslin. The trims were hand-made by Marilyn from DMC floss matching each pattern.

This year my goal is to finish my own stocking and have a complete set.
