I decided to make stockings for my two grandchildren, Tommy and Chloe, and am happy to have them all finished. I purchased the red with black and white dogs last year while in CA, visiting Jennie. The green cupcake fabric I have had for a couple of years. They were very quick and I did not add a lot of embellishment, just a little machine quilting and a binding. There are so many stocking tutorials on blogs everywhere, but if you would like a quick tutorial let me know and I would be happy to do one here for you. I was going to take at least one more photo showing the lining but, camera battery is dead and on the charger. I will try to take one before they are filled and in the mail on their way to two special little ones!! I love Christmas!!
I do miss having children around, so many memories of when my children were growing up. To start with, the Christmas plays at church. Oh they were so fun, the singing and the acting and special costumes. Since our children were homeschooled, the plays at church were very important for them to learn to sing and act, their mommy was very lacking in that area. Until the year our son no longer wanted to be in the play at four years of age because he didn’t like that he felt like a fish in a fishbowl. We laughed so hard! He is still like that. Our daughters always liked center stage, no stage fright there!!
I hope you don’t mind a little walk down memory lane!
If you would like to share with us something you cherish at Christmas time we would love to hear!!
