Christmas Stockings

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.

  1. Very nice. Busy lady. No more grand babies here. Got 2 one is 24 and the other is 10. Both from 2 sons. I really like it when people make their stockings. Puts a really nice home made feel into the holidays.

  2. Beautiful stockings. You have put in a big effort for those little treasures of yours. They will love them for many years to come. So glad to hear Max is doing well. I think of him often and have wondered. I hope he continues to thrive and grow with all the love he is getting from his wonderful family.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
