|This year our Christmas shopping consists mainly of some small identical presents and when I saw the pattern for Mini Stockings (http://www.marthastewart.com/article/mini-stockings) on the Martha Stewart Crafts email I thought those look simple and they would be cuter than wrapping. DH added, and you could machine embroider their names, too. Little did I know that they would take the better part of 3 days. I enlarged the pattern to 130% and I'm glad that I did or they would have been really fiddly. I made 29 of them, and I was glad to see the last one, I'm not so much a crafter as a would be quilter, lol. |
I was really wanting to get working on Step 3 of Roll Roll Cotton Boll, and on some quilts in progress, but felt that I needed to finish the stockings. Now, my brother is coming to visit, which is a good thing and so I am probably not going to get to working on more sewing for a few days. That doesn't even take into account that I need to do some housecleaning so that I can put up Christmas decorations, etc...... I'm just a retired person with 'time on my hands', how can I be so far behind?
