Christmas Stocking

Christmas gift delivered on time, so I can boast about it. My best and most complicated 2020 year stitching – Dimensions Gold Collection Santa’s Journey Stocking, designed by Peggy Abrams. This was my first Dimensions, I bought the kit on https://www.123stitch.com/ , waited a month before it reached me and stitched it in two months. The kit contains presorted thread, metalic thread, wool yarn , 18 count white Aida, felt, beads, needles (one for stitching and one for beading), and instructions with an alphabet. What is it worth buying an original set for? “What makes a Gold Collection design so special? – An extensive colour palette, stitches (and half stitches) that create texture and depth, and exquisite detail are all hallmarks of the Gold Collection. You create a work of art, and heirloom to enjoy for generations to come.”

Dimensions in Progress

I’ve don all the full crosses and half crosses on my Dimensions Gold Collection kit, so there is the highest time to decorate the stitching with couching, beading, back stitch and french knots. Some parts of couching was done this week and there were any problems with it for me, back stitch never was a problem, I even like it, but french knots… they are my headache, possibly for being a perfectionist. That is the best I could do.
