8 Months 'Til Christmas!

That might seem like a long time away, but when you sell handmade items (especially some that take a while to finish) it really isn't that far away.  Most of the stores I deal with get their traffic in the summer and early fall so I have to have most of my inventory made by that means getting the Christmas stuff finished now too.

A pile of almost finished Stockings.

These are made with pieces of woollen blanket, stitched together with an old fashioned blanket stitch using matching yarn.  The finished stockings will have a white blanket fabric cuff.  I make them in green with white cuff, red with white cuff and white with white cuff with a contrasting green and red stitch.
