I started on Sunday and worked through until Monday and one is done. Right after Christmas, Kristina asked for new stockings and a tree skirt. I told you all this before, but for new readers I'm filling in quick details. I started the skirt and to say I didn't like it ~~ well that is telling it mildly.
I ordered a different green from Connecting Threads two weeks ago and its here. I love it!! Its here, you just have to scroll down a bit until you see it on the right hand side. Its the evergreen. It makes the trees just pop right off the fabric and that's what I was trying to achieve.
Now the girl also wanted the stockings BIG and I think I've achieved it. Direct quote "22 inches, Mom". I drew it up and showed her....................yes, that was the size. Okay. Get ready...................here it is.
When you compare to the regular size one that Karl and I have...................boy Santa must be awfully good to them at their house.
The original pattern came from Angie's Bits and Pieces. I used the design, just made it bigger............much bigger.
Our young lady turns 40 on Sunday. We are going over for lunch. I cannot believe that 40 years have passed and excuse me folks while I share a moment with Jan. Do you remember getting the phone call asking for you to come over and stay with Peter? And do you also remember that Karl offered you a coffee while the I sat there waiting for him to get going? Memories. We do have a few.
