~STOCKINGS in BERRY VELVET~
You would think with all the Christmas Stockings I make each year that my own child, my daughter Adrienne, would have a pretty pair for their home. Not so. What is it they say about Plumbers? They always have clogged sinks or something like that!??? Actually...I think it's more about her not being able to decide WHAT she's wanted more than me not getting on with making them if you want to know the truth...
Since I know she's cramming on last minute work for college (she and her hubby graduate in May!!!) I'm pretty confident she's not going to see this Post. So...I'm sharing with you the "By Special Request Christmas Stockings" fashioned just for her and her handsome hubby.
~PIN EASILY REMOVED~
My girl doesn't do WHITE like I do, nor did she do PINK like I did. She's a fairly traditional girl and favors comfortable and yet classy decor. Not too frou frou even though she's very girly. Her Christmas colors are berry (a light burgundy) with silver, gold and soft white.
~PRETTY VINTAGE LACES~
Last Winter while shopping at Penney's I found a gorgeous soft berry velvet drapery panel on clearance for $7. It had originally been priced at $98 and since I loved the color (and so did she) I decided to bring it home. At the time it matched the sofa we had in our home. Well...my girl now has that couch and so I decided to use the fabric to fashioned her Christmas Stockings.
~LOVELY TATTED LACES and CROCHET~
I tucked the remainder of the fabric back for the BABIES I know she's going to have some day...like ONCE SHE'S OUT OF SCHOOL! :) (I can't wait!)
Just a few more days and Christmas will be here. Can you believe it? My Miss K is coming today and we are baking cookies this afternoon and then going to see the LIGHTS in Chickasha, Oklahoma... Such a fun tradition for our family.
Love to you...
