my creative space...
I got a bit of a chance yesterday to make a start on my Christmas stocking for my stocking swap. Just a little sneak peek today. I am using the DMC precious metal threads for the first time. Thought it would add a little vintage glam to my stocking. Most of my favourite vintage chenille bedspreads from the 1950's have that silver mylar thread running through them, and I just love it. It's a bit hard to pick up in the photo, but I added one strand of the silver thread into the red and I plan on stitching other parts on my stocking with just the silver. I hope the finished stocking looks as good in reality as it all does in my head!
