Christmas Stocking for Caterina

On the 8th of January, 2011 I offered you a contest on my blog "Be Your Own Designer" and design your own Christmas stocking and I promised to stitch it for a winner. Here is a link to that post:

Surprisingly for me, nobody wanted to participate in that contest and I had only one person who contacted me. It was Caterina from

Since she was only one who participated I announced her as the winner of that contest. Caterina didn't design her stocking but she e-mailed me these lovely photos
and asked to make a stocking based upon the images.

Today I can finally tell Caterina that her Christmas stocking is ready to be filled up with Christmas goodies. Well, Caterina won't get it for the Christmas, but I hope it will arrive before the New Year!

Happy New Year, Caterina! I hope you like it!

and final view, by the way the stocking was stitched with The Silk Mill, new silk thread I purchased recently

Natalia, my dear, you ask me if I like it?? I'm happy! I LOVE IT!
sock is the most beautiful I have ever seen in the blogosphere, and it is mine!! I'm in seventh heaven, is a masterpiece, like all the things you do!
I was sure you would be able to do it, forgive me if I have not been able to make the pattern, because I can not embroider, but this fits corresponds exactly to the idea that I had. thank you, dear, a very Happy Christmas to you and your family!

xxxxxx Caterina

PS Please remember to write GIFT on the package, otherwise the post office they charge me customs fees exaggerated .. : (
I have no words to say thanks, but I thank you a lot, from the depths of my heart!

IT is wondeful and ACterina will be over the moon.
I remember well your post but you gave only a short time and I couldn't draw my design for lack of it :O((
Next time I'll be braver and I'll write to you all the same :o)))
Best wishes, ROanna
