Woah..we're halfway there! Any Bon Jovi fans? My SIL is still a Bon Jovi fan and had tons of his music at their wedding. She danced to a bunch of it, so that was fun.

Start Maynia 2021 Start #15
I'm back to another stocking today and I remembered to take a photo of the front of the magazine for anyone who might be interested.
I found this at one of the big box stores, maybe A.C. Moore, and that closed in 2019. It has some fun designs, including these stockings naturally.
I managed to get a bit farther on #2, and added a little colour:
stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct scrap fabric with DMC 701 and 703 (not as charted)
The colours charted for these are red, pink and blue. I changed out the red for green and I think this matches the colour palette for the blue and pink ones as well. This was about 400 stitches I think, and let's say it all together now! "With another day or two I can finish these" :)
I'm looking forward to starting the 3rd one tomorrow and seeing if I can get more colour in it as well. Or maybe I'll concentrate on this one a bit longer and see if I can finish it off. I'm really enjoying this pattern for some reason. I don't know if you can tell, but the large pattern on the stocking "foot" is going to be a big star.
Hope you're all staying healthy and Happy Stitching!
