4th of july stocking





PATTERN BY BLACKBIRD DESIGNS.
THREE STOCKINGS OF JULY.
I purchased this pattern in Pigeon Forge, TN.
This is where i went to visit my family. The
Cross stitch store was huge. About four times
the size of the store we have in NY. tons of samples,
charts, linen, and they also sell finished pieces.
The name of the store I am pretty sure it was
called Dixie Darlin. What really made me happy
is I will have a stitching store within reasonable
distance from where i will be moving to. They
had every kind of linen you can think of. As a
stitcher, there is nothing like walking in to a stitching
store. The town Pigeon Forge is a big tourist area.
I will be posting more in the future about the area
and store. This finished stocking will always remind
me of my first trip to tenn. I started this piece there.
The fabric in the background is what this stocking is
finished with.

Very cool stitching! That's really a nice stocking.

And aren't you lucky to be moving so close to a good LNS. I'm pretty much all about online purchases unless I feel like fighting traffic for an hour and I rarely am in the mood for that!

Wonderful finishing! Wishing you all the best in your upcoming changes. It is awesome that you will have a LNS when you get there.

That is a great stocking, Cindy! So nicely finished, too :) I'm very happy that you'll have such a wonderful, large stitching store nearby when you move (a bit envious, too!!).

Hope you enjoy your weekend--it is cool and gloomy here, but I hope the sun will shine soon!
