A 2nd Finish for 2014

If you could call it that....

Here's my stuffed St. Nick from last year.
Love this pattern from Pat Thode of Heartstrings.   But he is missing a little something.


Well he was stitched and finished EXCEPT for the stocking he was to hold.   I was going to get back to it all last year and well you know, something shiny and sparkly grabbed my attention I am sure and the final touch just kept getting shoved aside.
I finally stitched this up in and assembled it in January.





I also removed the braid and opened up St. Nick to add more walnut shells to base and stuffing to the rest to make him firmer.   Something else that I was planning to do all year but never got back to.   I put the task on my list to do before I put him away with holiday decorations.  Now  both the stocking and the re-stuffing  are off my to-do list.

Yay for a finish - I think getting that stocking done and added to him IS a proper finish. He looks much better now he's got a bit more stuffing and his stocking to hold :)

That tiny stocking is adorable! It really does make this design something special.

Well done on finishing him at last!
