For My Son


For my son Brent, a wise man indeed.  He is a wonderful man, husband, father, brother, son and friend.  He has a tender heart, a great sense of humor and is an excellent cook.  


This Shepherd's Bush stocking is stitched on 18ct Natural Linen using 1 strand of #5 Perle Cotton from DMC, Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colors over 2 threads.

Oh Cari, how wonderful! It must be so neat to see your son grow up to be such a wonderful man. It's hard for me to imagine. I love SB stockings!
