So about a thousand years ago, I bought stockings for my kids at Michael's or JoAnn's (on sale after Christmas, I'm sure). Although they are nice, I've wanted to make stockings for us. I initially wanted to make cross stitch stockings and started one.
but it took forever and I didn't get very far and I was going to have to make five .... So, since I started quilting, I've been looking for quilted stocking patterns but hadn't found one I liked. I found one today and I think I'll try it. If the stocking turns out okay and doesn't take too long, I may finally make them this year.
On another note, since we're going to sell the house and don't want to get pine needles (or worse) on the floor from the tree, we are going to get an artificial tree this year.
Okay, now I'm off to look at my fabric to see what I have that might work for the stockings ....
