One Down, 743 to Go!

IMG_3716 One project to scratch off of the list!

Jack’s Christmas stocking is complete.

Yea!

IMG_3717 I haven’t used my embroidery skills for quite some time.

By the time I got down to the lower stocking,

all skills of stichery somehow came to the forefront

of my brain and I was proud of my accomplishment.

IMG_3718 Here’s the baby bear saying “Grand Mom, you did an awesome job!”

 

I already ordered and received the next stocking for baby number 2…whenever he or she

makes his or her appearance.

Love the stocking! Are you implying that there is another baby on its way or are you just looking towards the future?

That is elegant. He will treasure it always - especially since it is from and made by his grandma.

It's always a pleasure to know that my mom is already making gifts for the next baby...when she told me she bought another stocking for baby #2. I was speechless. I guess she wants be prepared!

No, Jamie, no baby yet.

What a cherished keepsake for Big Boy Jack. I have handmade items that my Grandmother made for me. Please put a date on this stocking. Even if it wears out Jack can keep pieces from the front. It is beautiful.

Very cool Deb! It will be a treasured gift! I still use the same stocking made by my great-grandma.
