It's That Time of Year

Several people have been asking me what I've been up to. In additon to a couple of models I have been trying to get these finished in time for Christmas.

The first is for the newest member of my family. Back in January my grand daughter and her husband met Thomas--a wonderful child--and fell in love with him. On October 12th the adoption became final and he is now officially part of my family. I stitched the *Snowman* and *Snowlady* stockings for his parents a few years ago so this one seemed to be appropriate for him. I do hope he likes it. It is Santa and Snowman stitched on 14 ct Aida using DMC and embellished with charms and *pom-pom*. It was backed with a dark red fabric and lined with white cotton.

This one was commissioned by the grandmother of my *nephew-in-law* (Don't ask... too complicated to explain) Anyway it is Holiday Workshop Stocking (on the right) and it was stitched on 28 ct linen using DMC floss. It was also finished using the dark red fabric and fully lined with cotton fabric.
