Hand Stitching Christmas

I know the holidays are over but I've been in a sewing mood lately...which is a good thing because I almost sold out on my applique Christmas stockings and I know I won't feel like working on them come spring.

Plus I had a couple of special orders that pushed me on ...

"Sew" the week between Christmas and New Years I cut out and pinned 7 stockings...
This way, with the designing done, all I have to do is choose a stocking and start stitching...
Just grab and go...  
 With a daughter in club volleyball, I'm on the road a lot and
there's way to much down time for a "get er done" person like me.  :)

The stockings keep my hands busy and help me feel like I'm still accomplishing something.

I finished this happy little monster at a Volleyball tournament in Eugene.

And started the Lab in between games in Tacoma.

The Santa and the Jeeps were finished one hour at a time on my lunch breaks at work...

This one was a special order for a lovely customer and her jeep loving husband.

 I was so pleased with the way it turned out I made a 2nd one to sell in my Etsy shop.
I think it will be a big hit...I should probably make more!  :)

How about you?  Are there any of you out there still working on Christmas or am I the only one???

And of course I will be linking up to many of the parties in my side bar.


  1. Oh my gosh Denise, your stockings are too stinking cute! So unique and original. That monster made me giggle and the jeep turned out fabulous!

  2. Eugene the monster and Tacoma the lab are adorable. Yes, I do make Christmas stuff in January and February.
