Christmas Stocking 2019

Well, clearly, this is not a card. In fact, I have been so busy enjoying this holiday season, not a single card has been created! I also needed to finish up this Christmas project. I am hoping to be back in my studio (otherwise known as our living room and kitchen table..hahaha) soon. In the meantime, I thought I would share this year’s Christmas stocking. This was a fun one to make!

I love making our grandchildren handmade Christmas stockings. I have been cross-stitching for many, many years. I can only do about one a year (so many tiny stitches). One more to go for my eldest daughter’s family and the set is complete!

I generally order my kits from Amazon. I’ve noticed most of the craft stores do not sell much in the cross-stitching section. Is cross-stitching not a thing anymore? Was it ever a thing? Honestly, I can’t remember….

This stocking is from a Dimensions kit. The directions are easy to follow and the kit includes the fabric, thread and a needle. I always purchase extra needles. I really dislike constantly rethreading every time I change colors. I guess we all have our quirks!

The grandchild I gave this stocking to absolutely loves it! I hope she enjoys it for years to come.

Watch for another blog post later this week. Lots of fun things happening at Stampin’ Up!. I’ll keep you posted.

As always, Happy Crafting!! Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
