Thanks for your encouragement! Got it done.

Today I finished the Christmas stocking for my son-in-law Matt. Thank you, friends, for all of your encouragement!

Matt's name turned out well, after all. This morning, I fixed some of the letters, softening transitions from thick to thin with embroidery thread.

To make the curve of beads, I strung beads on a piece of thread, and hung the thread from the upper corners of the Christmas stocking. Ex-husband Terry, an artist, showed me this trick.

Matt will love it.

Nicely done! Good job on that “a”. Had to be tricky. This will make Claire and Matt happy ❤️💚❤️💚

You are right. The "a" was maddening to embroider. After I finished the last "t," I went back to the "a" and softened awkward transitions from thick to thin.

"Artists do that with paint," Terry said.

Thank you for your kind words.

Thank you! I added a few of the beads to my red moccasins, too.
