This is my small start on Molly’s Sock. The faces and hands are basketweave using 8 strands of floss, the eyes are cross stitch using 6 strands. Mary’s garment is perle cotton using combination crosses for the main section and alternating oblong cross for the sleeve. I did stitch Mary’s garment 3 times before I was happy with the result.
The month will have very little time for stitching, sewing or crafting in general!
I am trying to get the house decorated and am behind schedule. I will not be putting up the villages this year so that will free up time that I hope to use doing some holiday baking. The cookie wish list includes: cookie press (aka vanilla treats, or spritz), pizzelles, snowballs, peanut butter, chocolate chip using Reese’s Pieces instead of chocolate chips, seven layer and thumbprint. I think I need a bigger freezer.
