Finished Christmas Stocking
So many of life's tasks have no completion, but are ongoing, like laundry and housework. Other things that do have completion potential often remain undone. I have several of those projects scattered around my house...the partially knitted scarf, the stacks of photos to be put in books, and until yesterday, a cross-stitch Christmas stocking. I made a stocking for my oldest child, and then worked on one for my second child off and on (mostly off) for the past several years. This week, I realized how very close it was to being finished. So, with a few hours in the early mornings and late at night, I finished the stitching, and then with the help of someone who can actually sew, the stocking was lined, the back was attached, and voila! Merry Christmas, son! Now I only have one more stocking to do.
If you have projects scattered around your house, see if there is one that is close to completion. Finishing something is wonderfully satisfying!
