Christmas Stockings 2007

The picture on the right is the stockings that I stitched for my oldest son, Jacob, and his girlfriend, Julie. They are renovating 1 200+ year old farmhouse and had hoped to be in it. I envisioned the stockings hanging in their livingroom....but not this year.

Here they are just after opening their stockings! Jacob's stocking is Holiday Workshop and Julie's is Gardener's Delight. Both are from Better Homes and Gardens magazines.

Jacob has that smirk of his that I love....and Julie said was trying hard not to cry. She studied the stockings intently! : )

Ornaments I Stitched

Here's the picture of the ornaments I sent out. There are eight of them (one of the orange ones isn't in the picture entirely!). I will be starting my 2008 ornaments on New Year's Eve....if I get the birth announcement done (really need to get off here and stitch!) LOL!

Group Photo of Ornaments Received

Here's a group pic of all the ornaments received (minus the one at work!).

Three More Ornaments Received

Here are three lmore ornaments received (I do have one other to post, but I left it at work so don't have a picture yet!). The mitten is from Denise, the bird is from Janice, and the snow (with a red cardinal clay button) is from Carole. Sorry the photos are blurry. The pics just don't do them justice.
