    Both years I have had nephews over there but neither has gotten any of the stockings , which is fine with me . I enjoy knowing that I am helping make someones day a little bit brighter. They also explain that some of the guys will turn around and hand them out to the children there and that is fine with me . It is to brighten someones Holiday :thumbup:

    I would LOVE to help out with the 100 that your goal is set at! Do you think it would need to be Christmas fabric? I know my husband and all his friends (and me too) are reeeeeal into football . . . maybe a use sports fabric?

    Where do they need to be sent once they are completed??
