Stockings and Irons

The stocking were all hung...


I am going to play along with Whimsylove today. Stocking show off day!!

This is the fireplace. It is the last thing to do in the house. It needs a mantle and a blower to work right. nice hugh?! some day...some day. The little plant on the right is a Christmas Cactus. I think i've had it for 3 or so years now. It keeps blooming. I can't seem to kill it---oh, and neither can the cat. :) It is sitting in a wedding presen from Isreal. It is a bunch of carved camels and a bowl. When we first got it, I was like...ok. but now, i just love it. Something different. Oh, I should make a quick stitch camel.....how funny would that be? anywho...

The stockings i picked up at Joanne's a few years ago. They are really a great size and have that little pocket on the front for letters to santa--can you see a few sticking out?

Give me some thoughts though on making them personal. I am thinking i could stitch names on the top fluffy part...but is it too fluffy? Should i add toes? birds? snowmen? hammers? or a pile of coal? hee hee ok really -----anything? Let me know, or link me some examples.

I think it's time to add some personality to them.

p.s.- the little one is for sage, the cat.


Look how cute this bag is!!! It is lined with quilted insulated fabric and the front is a pocket. The pull string keeps everything inside......and what is inside you ask?




A MINI IRON!!!
yay!! and a fat quarter, and a little bottle of spray starch. What a wonderful present to get from out quilt meeting/christmas dinner last night. It was a bunch of fun!! I ended up with a cute little pink basket, 3 fat quarters, and a pattern.
Not bad, not bad at all.

Love your red stockings- and the letter for santa pocket- too cute!!

You could stich the names acroos the bottom of the stockings, there is plety of room if the top is too fluffy.

I love your fireplace! It looks so Christmas-ie.
Papersource.com has a cool stocking with felt dots all over it. But what if you took the dots and stitched on that? And then attached the felt dots to the fuzz?
Here's a link:

Your stockings are too cute, hung in a row. I love that you have a little one for your cat... my dog has one too, but it's a little bit bigger. ;)

The Purl Bee is featuring Christmas crafts all this week and had a neat tutorial on making felt snowflakes and stockings, maybe it will help get the creative juices flowing? Doesn't hurt to take a look! :)
