One of the joys of this house is the fireplace and the chance to finally properly hang some stockings! The 10yr old was given one as a baby by her Nantie, a couple of years ago I modified a shop-bought one for the boyf (may need to rectify that some day) and so we had a pair. But, as the 10yr old rightly pointed out this weekend, we were missing a couple, or three, and so I spent the afternoon filling the gap. Megs, I and Rascal the Cat now have our spot on the mantelpiece; fabulously easy, I made all three in an hour. I'll post a quick tutorial tomorrow, but for now here are a couple of pictures.
|My new stocking is faux green silk and ribbon details, Megs has red spots and the 10yr old's is the needlepoint .|
|The boyf's stocking is the great big red one... Rascal's is a manly blue.|
|I love the top of my stocking!|
|I followed thorough with the polka dots on Megs stocking.|
|And Rascal's is a lovely spot of citrus colour at the end of the row.|
