The stocking is done!

I decided not to add the beads to the background instead of the french knots. I added them to the top of the stocking, and I am not sure I like how they are turning out. I might take them out after all. I think the stocking is quite festive and colorful enough, and has plenty of detail so I think the beads/french knots are not that important for the piece. So, this is how it will be. My mother is going to make it into an actual stocking for me. She did a great job on Sumarros’s stocking last year and I am not sure that I can sew a stocking as well as she can.

And I started on the mother’s day present for my mother. No sharing yet since it is a secret and my mom checks my blog every once in a while :o)

    Sokkurinn er geðveikur, hlakka til að sjá hann þegar mamma þín er búin að handfjatla hann 😀
