Final December finishes

I managed to finish off these three stockings - I had made two of the stockings a while back - before Christmas last year - (at least) - but really wanted them done for this year - I missed the Christmas day deadline - but was able to finish them off ready for DD1 to take back home ...and of course - by now - there had to be a third.

I told DD1 that I had enough fabric to make one more....(hint hint)

Maureen & I decided we would keep it simple for Christmas and we decided to make a decoration for each other.
I knew Maureen had quite a collection of stockings which she hangs on a special I decided to add to her collection.

This is a machine embroidery design (from Molly Mine....) - I did leave out some of the embroidery, so that the fabrics could get some of the spotlight!!
I made it in pink for Maureen - and as I had used a large hoop - there was extra stabilizer - and I could just squeeze in one more (by reversing it).  So I made a blue one for me to match some of the other blue & silver decorations in the family room.

Funnily enough Maureen made me a stocking too!   It's lovely.

To all:
