Today I want to share one of the things I have been working on for the last 5 years - Christmas Stockings!
It all stated when I was 16, and my mom asked me to make Christmas stockings for my 2 brothers and I. I have done needle point since I was 10 or so, and so I made my bothers and I each one - they were pretty simple.
Then when I was 23 - SURPRISE! My parents had my brother Tucker. So now I needed to make all new stockings as the ones I originally made I couldn't find a 4th to match. So I decided to make ones I could add to as need be and finally include my mom and dad.
And so the collection began...
Here are some of them on the banister of my parents house when my Mom started to decorate for Christmas this year.
And of course I needed to make one for my Cats! I just finished it last night.
Now don't think I am so very creative, that I come up with these on my own. They come from kits like this:
So I cut out the 100+ pieces and embroider it all and add sequins and other embellishments I think of a along the way. Their not the most classy thing - but their fun and I like making them, it's very relaxing while I'm watching Downton Abbey :)
I am currently finally working on one for my boyfriend. Terrible that I made on for my cats before him - but I had the cats first!
Have a good week!
