The stockings were hung by the chimney

I love that I finally finished making stockings for all the members of my family.  It has taken years.  I would like to share them with you.  I made the last three this week.  Mom, Dad, and JJ were made from patterns by Patrick Lose, you can find the patterns in the Fons & Porter's Quilting Celebration magazine or visit his web site here.  Max, Alex, Emma, & Kira's were made by adapting various patternsYes the last three are not as cute as the younger kids and smaller.  But they are done and that is all that matters to me. 

Merry Christmas
