My friend .. brought my love of stitching back to life a few years ago..I had always done some type of needlework..but she suggested I start making stockings for my family.. w/ the little ones arriving etc..The first one I made was my son-in-law's.. a giant snowman holding a small snowman's hands.. It's not my best..but I will always have fond fond memories of making it and what it meant to me.. then I made everyone else in the family one.. myself included..
I thought I had made all the stockings I was to make..
And then we were blessed w/ Olivier/Oliver..Ollie:)
He has a seashell added to his..one I picked on the beach.. because I stitched a lot of it there..and he visited:)
I add charms.. my daughters stockings have little pearls from my mom's necklace.. little reminders...
An AMAZING lady.. turns my needlepoints into fine art with her fairy fingers..she lines them w/ satin.. backs them w/ velvet or denim.. and cords them..They are finished to a "T"...Or an "F " I should say,, for Frances.. I hope she still has the desire to do this one..with fingers crossed!
I think this is my 11th:)
