As part of my web page relocation project, I have revisited all of my pages. It was a very nice trip down memory lane for me.
Since the Christmas season is now upon us and, as crafters, we STILL HAVE TIME :-) to make items in time for Christmas. Nothing like the last minute to impose a deadline, huh? :-)
Over the next couple of days, I'm going to share with you some of the Christmas-related quilted items I've made in the past. Here, on the blog, I'll give a brief teaser but will also give you the link to the web page where you can see ALL the pictures and read ALL the verbage. :-) I also have links where I can ... and if those links are still active.
So, without further ado ... today's item is "Stained Glass Christmas Stockings".
I have 6 Christmas stockings that I hang on the mantelpiece: 5 for our family members and 1 for my "new-ish" son-in-law. (They've been married one year already, so I don't think he qualifies strictly as a "new" SIL. :-) ).
I used the pattern from "Christmas Traditions in Stained Glass". a book by Brenda Henning, although I did a completely different, but entirely appropriate, design for my son-in-law. :-)
You might wonder why they don't all face the same direction. That's a good thing to wonder about. And I have an answer for you! But you need to wander on over to the web page to find out why! Yes, I'm such a tease. :-)
