And the stockings were finally hung


Chenille Stockings
Originally uploaded by GroggyFroggy.
I kept putting off making these stockings. I have had in mind to make them from a chenille sweater I had but was afraid to start cutting. I am very pleased with the way they turned out. I may eventually sew something on them to dress them up a little but for now I'm pleased. They're the sweater sleeves if you were wondering. :)

Prim Angel Ornament
This is a little primitive angel I sewed. I drew her face with markers. The wings are stuffed felt and there's a button that you have to squint to see in this pic. I enjoyed making her and I may give her to a lady in our church if I can bring myself to let go of her.

Believe Quiltie
This is a little quiltie I made. I designed the angel and stitched her. I first made her into an ornament but I didn't like the ornament so I "unsewed and unstuffed" it and made a quiltie. I like it a lot.

I finally got all my shopping done today. I'm so glad I didn't make myself go out in the rain yesterday. It is absolutely BEE U TEE FULL today. I had the best time, was focused and got everything I needed to let folks know I love them Monday morning.

I have so many people "out there" in internet land who I love and want to send things too. After Christmas I plan to start crafting and arting a lot more. I have been the recipient of so many beautiful wonderful things and it has been really appreciated.

Tim and I had a big fight yesterday. I stayed in bed for the remainder of the day. (I never do that) I threatened to leave...it was horrible. I was sick, sick, sick. Today we kissed and made up. I made my New Year's Resolution to be a kinder, gentler partner. (Now if I could get Minnie Pause to cooperate with me) A gruff speaker and a sensitive soul probably should not try to commune but the choice is made. lol What to do. We love each other despite ourselves. hehe

I hope everyone has a wonderful, wonderful holiday. Love to you.

You are so talented! My crafting is so sad in comparison :(

I was reading what you said about wanting to send so many of the "internets" gifts -- I feel the same way. So many people have touched me and I wanted to send them something -- yet didn't due to lack of money and time and laziness! But when reading what you wrote I thought 'Why not send them things throughout the year'? Instead of being one of a dozen things received in the mail the week before Christmas, be the one and only pick me up in March or June! I think I will do this :)

Thanks for your comments on my blog! I'm glad I made you smile this morning!

Merry Christmas!

Sherry
