The House at Christmas





I just finished Moira's stocking yesterday. Each time I make a new one, I make it easier than the one before. My favorite part about this one was a mistake! I was sewing the crochet trim around the top & when I sewed the end down, I thought I was on the backside. Oops. Not. There was a big fat seam down the front. BUT, I happened to have 3 white pearly buttons in my button jar. Hooray!


Moira was checking out the newly hung stockings. She seemed to like the decorations pretty well.
We went with the piano idea. Thanks Nicolle!

I love the stockings I made for Scott & I, crazy quilted out of vintage fabrics. They took forever. When I made them, I didn't have any little ones running around, and I was confined to bed rest. So, it was a fitting project for that time. I don't think I'll make anymore like that, though!
