    I just love the way the little boy in the stocking almost looks like your grandson. That is an amazing amount of work.

    What lovely work. It is so nice that your grandchildren will have a keepsake forever. I cherish some of the things my grandma made for me but nothing had this amount of time invested! It is just beautiful.

    Thanks for all the nice posts...appreciate them...I did have to change the little guy in the window...in the pattern it was a little girl.. so that was a challenge in itself...so the post of looking like my great grandson was a really good compliment...love this board...

    This is great. I have a friend that does great work like yours. I have given up cross stitch but still embroidery a little
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    WOW WOW WOW adorable grandsome and spectacular stocking I cross stitch so appreciate the amount of time and work you put in on that stocking i would never be able to even attempt something like that and if I did it would take 100 years for me to get it done.
