    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.

    They are absolutely gorgeous! It was always my intention to do cross-stitched stockings too but I procrastinated too long and now my addiction is quilting. (Not to mention my eyesight isn't what it used to be!) :oops:

    Those are beautiful! I like how they are all different. I did a lot of counted cross stitch at one time & got away from it when my kids were little- maybe it's time to get back to it!

    So beautiful. They are one lucky bunch of family members.
    I have my first grandson celebrating his 1st Christmas and that was my plan for him. Well, it never worked out. So.......I will be starting on one in February and then I will be sure to have it for his second Christmas

    Those are from Just Cross Stitch, aren't they? I made 2 in the series and started another. Really need to finish it up.
