    Christmas stockings

    I've made 8 of these stockings so far. The designer is Donna Kooler, they are from her Heirloom Stockings collections. I should take photos of the rest of the stockings which are at my son's house.

    such beautiful work, and a lot of it too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Those are works of heart. Very nice handwork. Each one of those has tons of hours in it and will be an heirloom.

    They are just beautiful. I would get pictures of all of them to put in my journal. It is fun to look back at where we have been with our work

    Oh my, they are gorgeous. I can see how much time and work you've put into each one. They are treasures for sure.

    Eight!!?? Beautiful! If I had done just one, that would have been the last one. Sometimes I do miss doing Counted Cross Stitching.
    Have a blessed day.

    I have also made 4 of these. It took me at least a year to complete each one of them. Now my daughter wants one for each of the grand kids - 5 more in the making - cuts into my quilting time!!!!!
