Friday night saw me cutting out and making up one of these stockings, still need to hand sew on the ric rac and name tag but I wanted to get an idea of the size before I.......
cut out 18 more as well as......
18 linings....... so this is what I did with my time last night now for some time at the machine today and tomorrow and hopefully these other 18 will look like the first and be that much closer to being finished :)
I also had a coffee break to refuel and opened up the parcel Cheryll sent me and was gobsmacked by these lovely individualised drink coasters if you look closely she's personalised every one of them! Thanks Cheryll I love them but most of all I love your kindness and thoughtfulness XXXX
Also arriving at my door stop was a couple of swap parcels, this gorgeous paper pieced stocking is from Carol in Cheryll's Santa Sack Swap......wasn't I spoilt but wait it's also full of pressies but I can't open them till Cheryll says we can :)
Here's a close up of Carol's stitching aren't the stitches soooooo tiny! I love it Carol, the colours are just sooooo me! :)
Another swap parcel also landed this week from Leanne my partner in Mrs Martin's Celebrate swap, don't you just love the felt bell ornament. Thanks for being my partner for this swap Leanne it's been great fun exchanging parcels with you throughout the year :)
Now to get cracking and finish those stockings, maybe a coffee or two thrown in as well. Don't forget to check out the other girls who joined me stitching last night at http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com/ and see what they got up to on their crafting night :)
