Stitched Christmas Stockting

Well hello there!

Boy, time is really flying by and December is no exception, if anything December seems to run faster than all the other months! How are you doing, bloggy chums? Is your Christmas making season in full swing?

I am getting a bit of a late start on making some of my gifts this year, but one little thing I completed was for a quick swap with a few of my stitchy pals. This little felt stocking is something I made for my friend, Crystal. The pattern is from Fa La La La Felt, I think it's just darling, it's one of the first things in the book that I wanted to make when I cracked it open for the first time, and I finally had a reason. (not that you have to have a reason, but it helps with the motivation!)

I love the sweet little flowers & leaves near the bottom and the French knot polka dots...

The fun little diamond shapes  form a sort of argyle pattern ♥

I stuffed that little stocking full of "Sweet Sticks" and send it whizzing over hill and dale all the way to North Carolina.

Fun stuff, swaps! This was a fun item to make, and bigger than it probably looks. I'd say... maybe 6"-8"? Pretty good size anyway.

So yeah, that's the first Christmas item completed! One down, many to go.

In other news, my beloved niece Ana has come home for a quick Christmas vacation, and she's brought her beau! Today we're all heading San Francisco to goof around. Chad has never been to California before so we're smashing in as much Golden State goodness as we can, Saturday we're going to Tahoe to the kids can go snow boarding. I myself will be sitting, warm and snug in a lodge somewhere near the bottom of the mountain stitching or reading and drinking something hot & yummy! Auntie Lisa is NOT a big fan of snow sports beyond lobbing snowballs at unsuspecting family members :)

So I've got to run! Time to get on the road to the City!
Ta ta for now!

So cute! So argyle! Crystal is a lucky lady, but I already knew that.

What an adorable little stocking! Like everything you do, it has such perfect little details. And, I also like how you stuffed it with candy sticks. Yum! xoxo
