I showed you the little stockings I wanted to finally finish. And I did! I got them all done. They have been laying around in my sewing room forever. Long ago I did finishing for a needlework shop. At one time I felt like I could finish Christmas stockings in my sleep.
This is how they turned out:
DH sent them off yesterday in a box of gifts for the grandchildren. I put a candy cane in each one. Two of them are more suited to California weather than where we live. DS#2 was going to get a tree this past Sunday. Our tree isn't usually up until the 15th unless I throw a hissy fit. I may change out the stitched samplers for Christmas ones and change the pillows on the sofa while I'm at it.
