Cooper's Christmas stocking

Mum reminded me two weeks ago that I should hurry up and finish Cooper's christmas stocking before Felicity went and bought him one herself! I had been secretly making him one, since before he was even conceived lol. I'd already finished the stitching and finally sewed it up into a stocking just before I went to Wollongong last weekend. Felicity loved it. I LOVE these heirloom stockings. I've made them for Dave, Tassy and I (all different designs) and I'm thinking I will make one for all my nieces and nephews... buuuuuut I'll see how that pans out, lol. :)Tassy and I have just spent the last two hours setting up our Christmas tree while listening to four of our Christmas albums in the background. I love Christmas!

Oh Yvette this is absolutely stunning! What a fantastic gift! I used to cross stitch before I discovered scrapping and I've often thought about doing one for each of my kids. Yours is just so beautiful you clever thing!

It is just so beautiful! I remember watching you stitch years ago and thinking just how fast you are!! But I know a project of this magnitude would have even taken you hours on end! I also know Felicity will really treasure it :) I hope you're still wanting to do them for all your neices and nephews by the time I have kids!!
XOXO

Wow that would have taken ages to do! Looks fab! BTW I love the LO from the LO swap! Mind you, it would be pretty hard if you were the last person to receive the LO! I reckon I would struggle with what else to add.

OMG - Amazing stockings Yvette!! I know how long it took me to make 2 - I can only imagine how long it took you to make four of them. I love getting mine out each Christmas - I am sure your nephew's will be a cherished heirloom. I was very excited to see that someone else has made them up too :)
