It's So Small

So very, very small and so darn cute!!!  I love stitching over one.  I love the finished look but it can be hard on my eyes.  

This is what I stitched for Karen K. for the HOE Halloween Ornament round #3.  I snapped this picture as I was stitching the tiny cording...


Once I completed the stitching I decided to finish it into an actual lined stocking.    For a moment I did fear *messing up* and possibly destroying the stitched piece. Fortunately, I do not mind working *small* and it was not difficult.

2014 HOE Halloween Ornament Round #3
Designer: BBD
Design: Tis Halloween
Stitched for: Karen K.

Given the size of the stocking I needed a small scale print for the backing/lining and was able to pull this piece from my quilting stash. The tiny cording was made using black pearl cotton #12. Despite the size it all went together quite easily and, as I stated earlier, it is so darn cute!


Thanks for stopping by and...
