Success!.....

I finished my great grandson's stocking at 10:30 last night.  His name is a little too high on the cuff but I doubt it will make any difference to him.
















Finally I'm using some of this cute kid's Christmas print.

I got my gifts mailed to out of state family and baked a batch of Spritz cookies yesterday.  Today I need to wrap gifts for the party tomorrow and bake some requested goodies.

The stocking turned out so well, handmade Christmas things are a treasure. Have a wonderful day baking, I'm already baking up the cut-out gingerbread cookies this morning. The house smells wonderful!

It turned out really cute! Santa looks great on the denim!

Adorable stocking Wanda! This will be a treasure for decades! As usual, artistically done, and beautifully sewn. Merry Christmas!

I have to kick in high gear to get binding done for daughter's quilt and Frozen quilting done for granddaughter.

cute!! I used to make socks for all my nieces and nephews (I only have 2 grands so that was easy) but when those nieces and nephews started to have kids of their own I called it quits.

They will treasure this. My mother-in-law made hand knitted stockings for both my boys when they were little. They are now almost 30 and it is still the first thing they hang during Christmas.

It is just darling, Wanda. He will treasure it for years.

I think we may have both grown up in families where we often heard "idle hands are the devil's playground." Although I think you outdo me in accomplishments almost every day.

It is a really cute stocking, I wouldn't have thought of denim but it turned out great.

Love the denim stocking! When I see such beautiful embroidery like this, it makes me want Santa to drop an embroidery machine off at my house! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Love this stocking! You have really made the blue background part of the design, and the reversed cuff -- perfect! Dont' work too hard now. :D
