In mid-October, I had the brilliant and ambitious idea to cross-stitch a Christmas stocking for Bert. I ordered a book of patterns, picked one and promptly got started. This is the picture in the book:
Here's a look at the two (yes, two) pages of the pattern and charts:
And here is how far I got, as Christmas rapidly approaches:
Apparently, I should have started this as soon as I knew I was pregnant. It would certainly be a lot easier to concentrate on without Bert and his myriad of needs and demands. I can only hope that it is done by next Christmas. I'm showing all of you this so that you can prod me along to getting it finished!
