I love to make Christmas decorations but how many can a person have? And I particularly like to make stockings! I've knitted a few, sewed some, cross-stitched, embellished bought ones and just love to make them. I don't know what it is about the stockings that I am so fond of but they are just things I like at Christmas time. I found a solution! The local quilt shop is collecting stockings for Lighthouse, which is a charitable organization for those in need. They have a Christmas shop for their clients each year. Yay, I can make stockings anytime of the year and donate them for a worthy cause. Here is my first one. I have so many other things to do right now but I had to stop everything and make a stocking! I used a piece of pre-quilted fabric that I had in my "stuff". I also found the ribbon of bells in my collection. I buy Christmas things every year just thinking that I might be able to use it someday or just because I like them!
(They are also collecting doll blankets and I can't wait to make a few of them.) Doll blankets a little later as I have some other projects that I have to finish first.
