And The Stockings Were Hung With Care

Wow, Christmas is coming much sooner than I'm ready.  Well at least ready for Christmas, on the other hand I'm ready to be on holidays!  Which I start at 3:30 PM on Friday!  I soooo can't wait!  I've got nothing too big or too exciting going on for my holidays so I'm hoping to get in a lot of stitching.  Of course lately I'm finding it a challenge to settle down and stitch, I hope its not a problem when I'm off!

Today I buckled down and did the last of the finishing on my JBW stockings, I plan on giving them to their new owners on Friday and I've got a busy week ahead.  So I had to get cord made and sewn to each of them today!

They're each filled with crushed walnut shells that give them a nice weight.






Off to work on Art Deco Spirits!

Those turned out adorable, Dani! The new owners are going to love, love, love them!

We start vacation this week too! My third graders are so excited that it's impossible to get anything done. My own kids are in a different district though and they're in until the 22nd.

Have a great holiday!
