Little ‘Blackbird’ Stockings

I know I should really be completing the embarrassingly huge amount of UFO’s that I have but I just can’t help myself, you see last year I let my fingers do the walking and bought a number of cross stitch patterns on line.  Well, I shouldn’t just sit and look at them should I? The least I can do is start them, “oh no, more UFO’s” she cries.  But in this case I got totally hooked and managed to get a few of these little stockings finished.002  Blackbird Designs have them for each month of the year.  I don’t know if I’ll do that many but I do think I’ll do more.

Now the other embarrassing thing is that I didn’t realise that I had left the basting stitches in until I took the photo – oops.

Anyway, I think they are kind of cute, totally useless, but non the less cute.  So now what does one do with them and how do you display them??

I hope you are all having fun stitching into the New Year

  1. They are cute. If you manage all 12 perhaps add 12 plain ones for a bunting, or what about making a calender with each stocking as a pic for the month?

  2. .... the boots are beautiful ... and your works are really beautiful, Congratulations!

  3. Hi girlfriend!
    I've seen a lot of people use these as ornaments of course, but I always thought they would look cute appliqued on some kind of quilt and framed. Not that I have time to do that, just say'in. hee,hee,hee.
    Hope you are doing good!

  4. They are sooo adorable~~ I see some people made them into ornaments. I would be quite cute with a tree full of them~~

  5. Well if you had 24 it would make an awesome advent calendar [inserts evil laugh]

  6. Wow, such a lovely stockings!
    I think they could be used as a scissor case? Or just as a Christmas tree ornaments :)

    Best wishes,

  7. You really need to stitch all 36 and dedicate them their very own tree...........

    Only kidding, they are gorgeous, you're way ahead of me cos I haven't even started mine 'yet'.


Thankyou so much for popping by and leaving a comment. I enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas and will get back to you if needed, hugs - Miche'le
