Seven Years in the Making

When Peter and I got married, I bought two cross stitch stocking kits. I finished Pete's stocking this morning, five days after Christmas, just seven Christmases after we got married.

Now, to be clear, I have definitely not worked on it that whole time.

In fact, added all together, it probably only took a few months of evenings to finish.

But it was definitely a labor of love, and I am so proud of how it turned out! Merry Christmas, Peter, I'm glad you finally have a homemade stocking!
