I also made a Christmas stocking last weekend. If I were to make it again, I would make the pattern a bit wider. By the time the stocking pieces were quilted and everything sewn together, it does not allow for a gift of much width to go in. I am going to do the same thing as Libby from a Simple Girl and make some stockings to be used as gift wrap instead of paper. It is something that can be reused instead of thrown away like paper. And I certainly have plenty of fabric to make stockings from. The stocking pattern is also for the "Christmas or Not" book.
I am working on a secret project. I can't post a picture as it would be a for sure giveaway as to who was going to be receiving it. But it is oh so cute!
I thank all of you for your concern about my back discomfort. The pain is certainly less than it was but not cured either. But I can sew and that makes me happy!
We are experiencing cool weather in Florida. This is a bit early for us. In the past, I have served Thanksgiving dinner out by the pool when we had bunches of company. I think we had rain or some kind of weather problem last year at Thanksgiving time, but that was a first that I can remember not having decent weather for Turkey Day since we moved to Florida. I know eating turkey by the pool does not sound much like a traditional Thanksgiving dinner but it works for us.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
