Christmas Stockings Traditions

                                                          I made the middle stocking

Sunday morning I am sipping my coffee. Everyone’s blogs are so interesting . It’s so fun to see all my blogger friends Christmas decorations this time of year. Well I finished the grandbaby’s stocking! I am so glad that is done. Here are the pics of the stocking plus my mother in law made all the others. Keeping a family tradition was worth it. I can see my mistakes but I had never made a stocking before but I am more or less happy with it. There is storm coming so I had better make sure I have enough wood. Have a peaceful Sunday!

what a great holiday tradition. I do not see any mistakes.
are you expecting much snow?
we didn't get much out of the last storm thank goodness. But it was pretty cold last night with the moon shinning down at us.
stay warm and safe.

Hi Cheri, you sure have a beautiful blog! I love Larkrise too. (It is my one weakness!) :) My name is Delisa, I am 48 years old and live in Georgia. I love to write, knit and crochet. I always enjoy the BBC and PBS costume dramas and miniseries, especially the movies made from Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell and Charles Dickens novels. Sometimes those beautiful costumes inspire some of my designs. Last year I made a "Candleford Scarf Set". :) When I mention Larkrise to most people I know, they are not familiar with the show, so I when I saw the name of your blog, when I was visiting over at Sassafras and Winterberry, I wanted to pop by and say hello! I hope you have a lovely sunday afternoon. Delisa ;)

Cheri,
You have done a beautiful job in carrying on that stocking tradition. They are all special and yours fits in the collection perfectly. I love the trains chugging along the bottom :)

Hi Kim and Lauren well Grandma Alice started the tradition and I was so touched when I received one when I married into the family. As you can tell we love trains. Hugs Cheri

Delisa, I love the sweet show Larkrise to Candleford too and so enjoy watching reruns on Sundays. If you love Jane Austen have you seen a really cute funny movie called Lost in Austen it is so funny if your a Jane Austen fan.Hugs Cheri

I would say Jack's Christmas stocking turned out perfectly. How nice that your mother in-law made a stocking for you, I think that is wonderful way to welcome a daughter in-law into her new family. I am going to remember that idea. Sending greetings from Maine, Julie.
