Needed: Faith (of the spider that is)

I simply can not motivate myself to work on the stocking.  I have many cheerleaders, Mary, Pam, Laurie, and Jill!  Instead, I started the first of my first 12 Days Of Christmas by Shelly.  It is easy to take on the go, or at least that is how I rationalized it to myself!  Finished the sky and half of the grass on the Partridge in a Pear Tree....and still the stocking sits.  Seriously, this is a TIRED post!  I need to get motivated and just blast through the task at hand!  I am hoping that putting it into words (again) will serve as motivation for me!

For the time being, here is the sky on the 12 Days of Christmas!

P.S. I am excited to try to use my stash threads on this project.  I used a size 16 Krienik for this background and the string that you see is all the is left ~ mission accomplished ~ stash reduced!


  1. Love the sky. What are you thinking for the tree and grass? I'll think on it too. French knots are probably an obvious choice for the tree, but I know there are better ideas. Will you bead the pears or maybe felt applique?

  2. Did the grass last night with OD Floss in a diamond rays stitch. Thinking French knots on the tree so that the pears do not stand up too much from the leaves/tree. Definitely going to bead the pears! Bite your tongue with the appliqué suggestion!!!
