Reed's Stocking update

Here are my before and after pictures of Reed's Stocking. This is a fun stitch and it does go quickly. I am doing it on 18ct floba using DMC perle cottons as suggested by the designer.

I was able to purchase all of the perle cottons, for all five stocking patterns that I am planning on doing for all of us, from an ONS which was closing down earlier this year. I was sad to see the ONS close but I was happy to buy these at a reduced price.

I have also taken some pictures from the stash that I received from Jenna.

Here are LHN and CC collaborations packs; Wisdom, Goodwill and Believe.

These one's are Peace, Faith and Love and Faithfulness.

And finally these are Patience, and Tree of Life.
The threads in this picture are all Dinky Dyes silks. The middle bundle is for Cats Whiskers Blessed With Happiness, and the other color, Desert Sands which came from StitchingObsession, is for Ink Circles Cirque des Cercles.

I would like to thank everyone who left comments about hubbies job. He has still got a job until the end of August, this is when his contract runs out, so we are not panicking too much. In today's paper there are a number of suitable jobs for him, so he will be busy next week applying for them.
My job is still going well, the kids are all well so we are truely blessed in so many ways.
Happy stitching everyone.

I'm relieved to hear that your husband's employment situation isn't one of crisis. Good luck with the upcoming interviews!

Your stitching and stash are wonderful. :)

Glad to hear that DH will have some more job opportunities.

In response to your question on my blog --- the flamingo dishcloth wil "kind of" be for DH. He saw it so it's not a surprise anymore.

He "hates" flamingoes so it has been a family joke that I go and find as many as I can.

The SB stockings are so fun to stitch, and they stitch up so quickly using the DMC pearle thread. Its a bit of shock to go back to stitching on 32ct linen afterwards tho, lol. Look forward to seeing more Joanne.

Great new stash too, have fun!
