    I started making counted crosstitch stockings for my family 23 years ago. There are 9 of us now and Il have the 9th one in progress. When I have it completed I need to start looking for another pattern for a new arrival next year. Hope you enjoy looking at the completed ones.

    Absolutely beautiful!! I can see the many hours of stitching in each one, but the detail and love in each stitch must make it worthwhile and a heirloom treasure!

    Those are absolutely stunning. And just think of all the years and years that those will be hung up to be enjoyed again.

    Beautiful work. Many years ago I was going to make beautiful Christmas Stockings for my children and I never did. they are all adults now and I have not cross-stitched in about 10 years (since I started working)

    They are breathtaking. I do counted X stitch sometimes but never anything so intricate and involved. I appreciate the many, many hours you put into them. What wonderful family treasures.
