TW's Woodland Angel Stocking Is Done

It is 2:30pm on Thanksgiving Day and the embellishing and beading are done.  Setting the royal plum beads was a bit fussy.  In order to center them in gold gridwork, I had to come up and go down through the exact center of existing cross stitches.  That slowed me down just a bit.  However, I am absolutely loving the final product.

I am not sure whether I am happy or sad.  This piece has been my leisure time companion since early July.  I shall miss it.  On the other hand, I will really enjoy assembling it with a lovely backing and lining and then sending it off to my grandson.  In any case, here is a photo of the finished but as yet to be assembled stocking.  Thank you, Teresa Wentzler, for countless hours of wonderful stitching!

As to the melancholy, I can always cure that by adding another Teresa Wentzler piece into the rotation.  I am not sure whether it will be a dragon [Futurecaster] or the minstrel that I'll be using for Rocco's stocking.  It might be fun to stitch Rocco's and Piper's stockings simultaneously and aim for a November 2014 finish on both.
