Hang the Stockings - Completed

Cannot believe that I have completed , Hang the Stockings, well, basically completed, stillmin process of cutting my two and a half inch scrappy squares.

In the big picture, I  am rather happy with it.  I always like to put a little gold stitching on most of my blocks, so did the cross-stitches and straight stitches in gold thread, however,  I may change my mind and purchase the recommended dark gold 860, see what happens when I go to the city.


Until next time, happy stitching.
Sharon.
