Christmas Stocking

 I realized this week I haven't made a single Autumn or Halloween inspired quilt/craft/anything. I've had Christmas on my mind for the past at least month......maybe two. I'll be ready for December though:).

I finished last week's project and Elise's stocking so makes me want to make a new one for myself. The main fabric is by Riley Blake who I love all things Riley Blake for Elise. She already had a few dresses from various pattern lines and at least 2 quilts.

I trimmed the cuff of the stocking with little pink pom poms and think it finishes off the stocking perfectly with a little bit of whimsy. When I showed Elise she squealed and tried to grab it....which made me feel appreciated. (ok really she just wanted to eat it. We're at the stage where everything gets chewed on)

And yes, I was totally snuggling up to the fire yesterday, it was a little chilly and the perfect day to start one when lounging at home.

Not sure which project is going to be tackled this week. Hopefully I have my wonky quilt to show you! Who knows maybe I'll dine into my stash and pull out something more seasonally appropriate.


  1. I'll take 5 stockings please :-)
    And hey, your followers are growing exponentially! Yay!

  2. I love handmade stockings. My Mom has made all of her kids and their spouses and grandkids personalized stockings. Much better than a store bought. Thank you for sharing this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
