Christmas Cross Stitch for Stockings
Joy of Using Cross Stitch to Make Great Christmas Stockings
Cross stitch is among my favorite looking Christmas stocking images, as the quality is always very high and the scenes are fantastic to look at.
A great secondary use of cross stitch Christmas stockings is for adding to the quality of your Christmas décor (for some that's the primary use). As you'll see below, this is a fantastic way to make things in your home look even better for the Christmas holiday season.
Of course the usual use of a Christmas stocking applies when making a cross stitch stocking, and when you make them to cater to the interests and likes of your loved ones it's a great way show them you care, as well as delighting them with something they really enjoy. Many times that's done be including the name of the family members on the stockings.
The other side of making a Christmas cross stitch stocking is the work on it itself. Just like any type of artwork, it's a work of love, not just for the one you're making it for, but also for your own personal satisfaction of making and completing a project.
