My friend asked me to make her some new Christmas stockings for her family of five. She had a gorgeous decorator-weight Christmas plaid with a coordinating woven burgundy and cream. And tons of fun ribbons for embellishments. We got together in the evenings after her kidlets were in bed dreaming of sugar plums, and got to work. She made the bodies of the stockings while I worked on the cuffs. We didn't have any patterns; just some pictures we found online as ideas. A couple of them were pretty challenging. Particularly the logistics of putting it all together with no seams showing. I think we rocked it!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. I had a wonderful time. Excellent company. Fantastic food. And a great post-dinner hike to stave off the pumpkin pie coma.
I love this time of year. All the sparkly decorations. The yummy smells. Friends. Family. Utah.
Yes! I said Utah! I'm headed to my favorite place in the entire world in just two weeks! I can't tell you how excited I am. We already have a board on Pinterest of recipes and crafts we're going to hit while I'm down there. And since it's been about -30 with our wind chills this week, two weeks can't go by fast enough!
