Christmas stocking for Lucia

Lucia is the granddaughter of Helen, who has worked for Needle Nicely for over 20 years.  The canvas is a design by Alice Peterson and was a challenge to stitch because of all of its white elements. 

The turkey work hasn't been shaped yet--it's better to wait until the item is in its final form before trimming. 

It's really like a treasure hunt to click on each creature and see what fiber and stitch Helen used.   It's even more wonderful that there's plenty of time to have it backed before Christmas.
