Another day spent on the TW stocking. Seeing the progress made since last Tuesday is energizing and it keeps me stitching on this piece exclusively. The angel's right hand is now raised in blessing over the woodland creatures. There are more trees in the background. Who knows what else may appear before week's end!
For comparison's sake, here are photos showing the past week's progress:
As of Tuesday, August 27, I had completed sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 and parts of 3, 4 and 5. See close-up below.
As you can see, I had stitched the snow at the toe side of Section 4 and, as a change of pace, worked on the deer and one of the smaller trees, also in Section 4..
I know there are still some rather fussy bits ahead of me: the border around the name with all its half and quarter stitches, the wings with all their confetti stitching, the over one of the angel's face and the lettering of the name as well as the embellishing and beading of the border trim of the robes and draperies. But as I move quickly through these easier sections I am optimistic that this stocking, started August 6, 2012, will be finished by December, 2013.
