    My Original Stockings for the new family

    I started making stockings for my little family when I was pregnant with my second child. Emily was born on December 23rd and I embroidered her name on hers while in the hospital. I didn't know beforehand what his/her name would be! But I sure wanted it to be done when we went home Christmas day. This year she gave birth to my first grandchild, Malcolm, and he needed a stocking too. Each one I have made is unique and made up as I go along with a few elements that remain constant. Obviously, mom and dad needed new ones too - and so the project got a little more involved.
    I saved some of each of the main fabrics for any new members of the family that might arrive in the future. They also feature scraps from the dresses that I made for Emily and her sister Sarah when they were little. And I love the results!

    These are absolutely gorgeous. What wonderful gifts for this young family. Kudos to you (smile). Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
