I delivered the newest Christmas stocking to my granddaughter yesterday. She had a hook all ready for it.
Here is a closer look at her stocking. I made it in the late 1980s when I was still doing a lot of counted cross stitch. It is the only all cross stitch stocking that I did. The next 2 grandchildren got cross stitch cuffs on their stockings.
I did bindings on mug rugs last night while I watched TV.
It took me a little over 3 1/2 hours to do 10 bindings by machine. That comes out to about 22 minutes each.
If I had finished them by hand they would have taken about 45 minutes each minimum.
I quilted 5 more mug rugs a couple nights ago so they will get trimming and binding soon.
It was -3 degrees when I went to bed late last night. Thursday is supposed to be the coldest day and then snow again.
