The Season of Giving.....

 It is unmistakable that Christmas is approaching.  The stores are fully decked and I have caught a few commercials on television...oh my!

To usher in the season of Joy....I stitched a new Christmas Tree Skirt....


I designed a woolen, bow-tied bow wow to circle the skirt....

   
I added some pebble stitching and a bit of rik-rak around the bottom...Woof!

And what would Christmas be without a new stocking to hang on the mantle?

       
Some Art Gallery fabrics, Essex Linen and a wee Dresden....
top it off with a lovely crochet trim...


   And you have a Molly Flanders Stocking!

Thank you to all our Veterans on this Veteran's Day!
Just like many American families, I am proud to have had many members of my family serve in the military.
Thank you!

   


happy Sunday!

Love your use of wool in the tree skirt - can't believe all that pebble quilting - tried a bit myself today and go so bored! Does make a great texture though so worth the effort I guess!

Your stocking is so swanky ! Would love to see you in a pair of those!
