2011 Those damn stockings!

I finally finished "those damn christmas stockings" as I lovingly called them.  My good friend, Linda has two daughters who gave birth to three girls within a 3 year time frame so I decided to stitch them all birth samplers and Shepherd's Bush christmas stockings.  Because I only stitch if I have energy after working, it took me a very long time to get to them.  So every time my stitcher friends and I were together, that is all they saw me stitching.  They would ask, "hey what are you stitching" I would say, "These damn stockings".  However, I think it was worth all of the time and the recipients were very grateful.  Here they are:





In addition to these projects, I also finished the Primitive Halloween Sampler and Nora Corbett Dragonfly.  The Dragonfly picture doesn't do it justice because you cannot see the details (beads, svarosky crystals, etc.).  Here they are:




So,  this ends my projects for 2011.   
Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year.
