Well, I did manage to get the stocking patterns drawn out, I added a smaller version. You will find them in the share box on the side. I also included some of the graphics I used on the stockings. I printed my graphics on muslin that had the freezer pattern ironed to it. I just ran it through my printer. Remember if you are using the transfer paper, you will need to reverse the image.
I finished up 3 of my Candy Cane Annie dolls today. I have 5 more i need to sew up and get done. Hope to have lots of Raggedy Ann dolls done this year. I took advantage of the 95 degrees plus we had today and sprayed them down with coffee/water mixture and let the sun dry them for me, it only took a little bit of time.
I feel a little bit sad tonight, my daughter is starting to make noises about moving out, she is 19. She is my only child. I feel real teary-eyed tonight. I just can't imagine her not being here every night. Not knowing if she made it home at night safely. At that age they think they are invincible. I just hope it is all talk right now, I know it is going to happen some time soon, but I don't want my baby to grow up. Time is just going so fast. I don't get to spend enough time with her now, she works 40 hours plus a week, plus has a boyfriend and lots of friends. She is not home much now as it is. But I treasure the time when she is home. Now I know how my parents felt when I left home.
These are a smaller version of the larger stocking. I haven't got these quite finished yet. I still need to add the jute hanger and jute bow w/ jingle bell to the front of them.
