Snowflake Stocking – ANG First Timers’ Project

Filed under: Melita's Other Completed Pieces, Snowflake Stocking

While at the 2010 ANG Seminar, I picked up this snowflake stocking to stitch for the 2011 auction. It was available to First-Timers such as myself. The money goes towards educational programs of the ANG Guild.  So, I couldn’t help but take one & I’ve finished stitching it.  I’ve been working on it off & on since October & decided this week was a great time to finish it.  If Pat Thompson, 2011 Auction Chair, is reading this, mine is in the mail!

All you had to do was buy your own threads & the stitching was easy enough but I don’t care for the Tiara thread. I found it difficult to work with (snagged easily & it didn’t stay twisted). You could have used a combination of Tiara & Patina. The finished size is 4″ x 6″.

Very pretty! I’m sure the ANG Auction goers will love this.

Hi Melita… I stitched this very same stocking as a first timer two years ago..It worked up pretty fast.

Hi Jan, That answers my question – it’s a ‘stock’ stocking for First Timers!
