hung by the bookcase with care

I've decided that I want to get all of the Christmas stuff posted by the end of the month, so please bear with me. Only a few more things to go, I promise. (Would have been nice to have it all posted by the end of last year, oh well.)





This was a commission from Mike's girlfriend. Made of wool felt with pinked edges. The name has been machine embroidered with a very dense zig zag stitch. (Change the settings on the stitch to make it as wide as you want and reduce the stitch length to just below the buttonhole setting - or as tight as you desire it to be. Use a stabilizer on the back and just sew on your marked lines.)

Very nice, not too elfish or holly jolly. Did he like it?

What do you mean "does he like it?" He LOVES it! And just as soon as he downloads some images from his camera and sends them to Martha, you'll see the other gift he got that he loves -- from his niece.

This stocking is the best.

Well, you just never know with these urban sophisticates....
