Stitching Sunday

I just posted a video showing how to make cording from DMC floss. This is a technique I learned from doing the Bucilla stocking and ornament kits.

I have finished the scarecrow from my "Christmas in Oz," stocking and ornament kits. Now it is time to start Dorothy...her hair will be the biggest challenge.

I am making progress on the "Woodland Holidays." I'm halfway through adding all the holly leaves.

And I have appliquéd the trunk of a tree on the school house block. I will be embroidering with floss and silk ribbon to finish the tree.

One of my neighbors across the street is moving. Our old apartment buildings did not get built with elevators 100 years ago so we have a tiny retrofitted elevator which barely holds two people. To move furniture a lift system is used to bring everything through the large windows.

I'm linking up with Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday. There is always a nice variety of projects to see every week.

Darling stockings!

Cute stocking. I'm not sure I would want to move if it meant having to carry everything out through the window. New furniture must be a rarity.

Watching your video makes me appreciate even more how labour intensive that hand stitching detail is... amazing!
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching....and for showing us the amazing system of moving into old apartment buildings...that would be fascinating to see in person!

wow - what a way to move into an apartment - do you usually take the stairs or the tiny elevator-a tiny elevator like that might make me hesitant to use it.

Your stockings are very cute!

Gorgeous stockings!

Moving furniture out through the window from several stories up? Sounds like lots of excitement to me.
