Make Sure You're Stockings Are Hung...

Spell out your name with hand embroidered knit socks to be filled up with small treats.
Knit up a storm with them soft mohair blends & ribbon

Fine Linen and Lace Snowflakes

A forest of Pine Trees using a tree template cut out with pinking sheers for the Christmas tree look and attach with pearl buttons that make for baubles!
Christmas is for Children - of all ages - use ric rac or zig zag ribbon and felt cut outs to decorate plain coloured stockings, placed at the end of the bed, on the mantle or (as in my childhood) on the door knob!
Baby Socks - an advent calendar or a miniature way for your baby to have their own stocking/s. Using baby socks in similar colours attach/ [with wooden pegs] onto ribbon to create a bunting effect... so cute.
A simple quilted-stippled soft stocking in pale Christmas hues for baby filled with things that parents & baby can use.

If you've haven't hung your stockings yet - now's the time to do it, or St. Nicholas will not be able to leave you any treats!! If you're super organised and you still have time to decorate & sew here's a few stockings that caught my eye, and are inspiring me for the New Year & sewing projects especially the baby & children's ones... This year we know that Christmas [for us] will be a quieter one, although spent with family & friends, it will be very different than to what we expect for next year, when the two of us become three - in May 2010!
