Stockings and Giveaway

I have not been able to post for a couple of days, don't know where the time has gone. I am still working on scarecrows and dolls for a couple of orders. Trying to get all my finished orders done, so I can start back on show stuff.
I did get some more red ticking stockings done. I wanted to put a vintage image on the stockings, and I like the way it turned out. If any one is interested in the stocking pattern, just let me know and I will get it posted. I just used vintage images I collected in the past. I think this will be one of the quick and easy projects that don't take a lot of time to make, and won't cost a lot for people to buy this year at the shows.
On these stockings I used the freezer paper sheets and ironed my muslin onto it. Then printed the designs onto my muslin using my printer. I cut the images out with some room around each one, peeled off the freezer paper, and ironed on heat 'n' bond on the back of each one. Then cut out the images, peeled the backing off again and ironed them to the stockings. I used black embroidery floss and went around each one with a primitive stitch. Add a jute tie and hanger and rusty jingle bell with prim tag.
I found that I had one more of the Crow Shutters that I am offering in a giveaway this week. If you want to enter the giveaway, just leave me a commet. I will draw a name on Friday.
Well, my husband and I took my dad to look for a pool table. He found one, a little more expensive than I think he needed, but he wanted it. So he went ahead and paid for it and it should be delivered next week. He seemed really happy with it. I was talking with his doctor yesterday and she told me that his heart was only pumping at 20% capacity and she thought that hospice would come in and help him out, even though he is not terminal. She said she was going to talk to him about it, It sure would be great if they would send a nurse and someone to sit with him some. He gets so lonesome, which is bad for his depression. But hopefully this pool table will get him up and moving around. Some friends from his church are going to take him to Sam's tomorrow. Hope he will be able get out and enjoy himself.
Well, hopefully I can back to posting more often, as things are finally getting caught up again.
Check back for pics of some stars I am working on. Trying to make things that are fast and easy.
