    Finally finished!

    Y'all could have whipped these out in a weekend, but these gave me some issues. While it's not mathematically possible, I swear I ripped out twice as many stitches as I put in! But I'm growing ever closer to genius status... (see my signature if that doesn't make sense)

    This pattern is from Thimble Blossoms, but I redesigned the shape, added a liner, did the cuff differently, and can't wait to make more. These are off to South America to my sister and her hubby. I think she'll like them. Oh, the fabric is Flurry by Kate Spain, cuffs are Bliss.
    aka Chicken McLittle

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Wonderful colors. The white makes them look ever so winter dreamy.

    Your stockings are beautiful! I've made a lot of them and can tell these do take a bit of time & work. You did a super job on them!

    I never made quilted stockings and I would have thought they would be easy...I am really great at believing I can do something in a day and it takes a month if I am lucky! I will not be adding these to my "to do" list for sure. They really are beautiful and the colors are just right.

    I agree....the color combo and simplicity of these is wonderful!
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    These are so very nice! I love this pattern, in fact, I think I have it! Oh dear, when I start to say "I think", then it must be time to stop the stash building!!!!
