A change of heart ~

I had originally thought that I would use my new seam binding fringe
on a stocking I started a few weeks ago BUT
it just wasn't working for me.

The more I stared at it, the longer I let it sit in my studio!
Plus, I didn't care for the slanted opening I had made
for my stocking pattern either. That didn't help a bit!

But after mulling it over for waaaay too long, I chopped the top off
the stocking and began playing with lace and trims.
And the strangest thing?
I pulled out a pretty little satin doll dress that the top was torn and
chopped the skirt off to use on the stocking too!

I finally finished it last night and am so pleased with the way
it finally turned out....
and what about the fringe I made?
It's going on a new project of course!

Here's my stocking ~ it's approx. 20" long.
Now listed in my Etsy store too!

Now that I've finished that project,
it's time to get crackin' on some new goodies!!

I hope you're having such a wonderful week precious friends ~
Happy Thursday!

hugs and love,

So darling, I love the little beaded toe! I am glad to know I am not the only one who does that with some projects, I have a couple laying around now that I can't figure out why I don't like them I just don't. I am encouraged to take another look at them and see new possibilities. Thanks!
