We've had snow this week & lots of it!
Christmas stockings are a huge part of our Christmas. Those who 'believe' in the spirit of Christmas will find something to eat, something to read, & something to play with, in their Christmas stocking on Christmas morning.
I made six Jim Shore stockings, last year & thought by only doing half that amount, this year, it would be an easy task...
No it wasn't as the pattern given was altered several times by me! As I created what I thought the stockings should be. Now that saying 'Good memory, just not long!' What did I do last year? ...
|And here is granddaughter Madison's stocking.|
To each stocking & added their personalized cuff & lined the inside with soft flannel.
Look to the right of this photo, see the wicker basket?
|When she is more awake, she sits on the back of my sewing chair & somehow stays balanced as I wheel around!|
Today she needed her nap time.
|This is the back all pressed in the right direction.|
|Then the stocking is cut out, batting & backing are added & it is quilted|
These truly are my labour of love for each person for Christmas. XO
|I put the Christmas quilt on the bed today & I just love how it looks!|
