I'm back to share another Christmas decoration in our home. This is the very first cross stitched Christmas stocking I made, for Tassy's first Christmas. I really love these Christmas stockings and I've made lots more. I'll share Dave's and mine soon too. The patterns were from 80s and 90s Christmas issues of the US Better Homes and Gardens Cross Stitch magazine - I bought a couple in the 90s, a couple second hand on ebay in the last few years and just recently I was STOKED to find a publication that includes nine of the patterns. I already have three of them but I was thrilled to get six new patterns.
And no, the stockings don't hang on the tree. It just looks better for the photo. In real life they're a bit too close to the TV to look pretty.
