I finished six Christmas stockings.
Forty years ago when my son was four years old and my daughter was two years old I made them these Christmas Stockings. Santa has filled them with goodies every year since then. They have held up pretty well except some of the stitches in the embroidery of their names are missing.
Six years later another son came along and every year since then I've been telling myself I really need to make him a special Christmas stocking since he has worn out many a cheap felt dollar store stocking.
And finally...this is the year now that he's 34 years old.
Johnny has always loved cats. While going through Christmas and cat fabrics I found enough bits and pieces of Laurel Burch fabrics to put together a stocking for him. Won't he be surprised.
I thought I had enough six inch Christmas nine patches to make six stockings but I only had enough to make four. There's two for my granddaughters, one for my grandson and one for my son-in-law.
I had some six inch squares of snowmen and snowflakes to make a stocking for my oldest son's girlfriend because I know that's something she likes.
Now everyone will have their own special Christmas stocking for Santa to fill.
And I know what they will all say on Christmas day when they see them...
"It's About Time".
