Last Day of November

Well, I have not done much blogging this month although I will probably do less next month. I haven't even started thinking about plans for 2019! Yikes!
First of all, it is the last Friday of then month and I have been posting about Reptiles. But I put it away to work on this:
 I had high hopes of having it stitched by this Christmas, but life got in the way. This is what it looked like last November:
 And here I am today.
I could start putting in Joseph, but I think I will backstitch the stable first.

I was cleaning my basement and found all my framed stitching. It was propped against a wall taking up space. I know our basement needs to be totally redone, which won't happen any time soon, so I just started hanging pictures on the wall randomly. This upset my sons-didn't find studs or use the right type of fastener and my daughter as I did not preview where I would hang them.
Here is what it looks like:
It makes me happy.

Beautiful Christmas stocking, it takes a lot of time to finish, maybe for next year. The wall looks amazing, love all those framed pictures.

I think hanging them was a good idea, so you can enjoy looking at them!

Your wall looks wonderful. I like what you've stitched--we have similar tastes.

What a wonderful wall. I like the random arrangement, it looks more natural. Much better than stacked on the floor in a basement.

Are they mostly all needlepoint?

I love your wall of random stitching! Great progress on the stocking, too.
