In keeping with family tradition, it is time to make Christmas stockings for the new additions to our family. It has been a great year (and a half) and three stockings were needed.
Middle Son and wife added baby #3 to their family, a darling girl.
Number One son and wife added two babies in the last year and a half. Rock joined the family last July and should have had a sock last year, but I had been sick and just couldn’t quite manage it. Just as well, I guess, since he was unexpectedly joined by a second son this this July. Our dear Max (also known as Kevin) was about 7 months old when he came to us and is now doing splendidly. And definitely needed a stocking, too.
They are done now and ready to be mailed and delivered.
As much as I enjoy doing them, there is a lot of handwork and detailing. That is what makes them special, but it also makes them take a long time. YAY for a finish and on to something new.
