It's done!

I know, trust me, I am just as surprised as you are.  Except for I did know I had steely determination on my side.  After a mere seven years I have finished the stitching for Sebastian's stocking!  Tomorrow I just have to turn it into an actual stocking.  It had to be washed tonight, you'd be shocked what kind of dirt gets on a piece of stitchery when it takes seven years to stitch it.

Now someone please talk me out of this stocking.  PLEASE!  While it does match very nicely. And it doesn't look too bad . . . I mean never mind that I have a stocking to do for my nephew this year, and they kind of expect it before he is 8; a birth sampler, which it would be great to get done before he is 1; and, and, and . . . 

Isn't it precious?  Wouldn't those three coordinating stockings look great hung on the mantle together?  And I love Christmas mice . . .   Somebody stop me.

Stocking update

I am a determined momma.  I have actually finished more since I took this picture, The bear's arm and legs still has holes in it because I yet again ran out of 738.  I've been through 2 skeins and will be on the third.  Even though it is a kit, I lost the 738 before I started.  The Sunset people were kind enough when I called to give me the DMC equivalent.

Between work and caring for my family, I haven't done a single stitch on any other project, and won't be until this one is done, so I don't expect to finish much else before Chirstmas.  There is a tiny Baby's First Christmas ornament by Lizzie Kate that I plan on getting done (even if I have to do it the 24th).  I wanted to get several other things done, but they'll hold.
