Nativity Stocking

I am suddenly in the mood to work on this stocking.  It's 8:15pm, the dishes from dinner are still out and I have company coming tomorrow.  Rats!  What's a stitcher to do?

 While I was in Memphis someone called and ordered this after seeing it on my blog.   It's called The North Pole Village by Rebecca Wood.  Amy Bunger did the stitch guide many years ago.  You can see why someone would want it.  Amy's stitches and thread selections are wonderful.

Darling Easter House

This was stitched by Elizabeth and could not be any cuter.  The beaded egg on top came from The Needle House in Houston, TX.

Some of this and some of that

Got the green beads on the wings

Background for Heartstrings nativity set
 Amy suggested an overdyed silk stitching the Helen's Lace stitch.  I think I like it.  Just hope I can get all the thread I need.

Now the adorable children

These are also two-sided Melissa Shirley bunny children stitched by Ruth.  Sorry for the fuzziness of the pic up top.    You still get the idea of all the cuteness.

This Melissa Shirley two-sided Poppa Bunny was stitched by Lisa.  She is so talented.  Can you imagine how wonderful her Easter display is?
