“Santa Golfing” Stocking -- February 16, 2009

I stitched the “Santa Golfing” stocking in the early to mid 1990’s.

At that time we were pretty much limited to DMC, Kreinik metallics, wool, and Mill Hill beads, or at least that’s what I had access to.

The entire ornament was stitched in Continental, Basketweave, and Turkeywork using either Paternayan or DMC’s Medici. The background was stitched using some sort of nylon thread/ribbon (I can’t remember what) for a light glistening look.

It’s been finished as a stocking with a green cord hanger. The backing fabric is done in green velvet and the inside of the stocking is finished with a patterned green holiday fabric.

I would have selected this design as a gift for my husband as he is an avid golfer.

I don’t have any records as to the designer. If you know, please let me know.

Hope you enjoyed my “Santa Golfing” stocking!
