Finished stocking

Happy Christmastide!
Such a busy time, I'm sure you are all just as busy too!
I did manage to do the finishing on the stocking on time.
My new son-in-law was simply thrilled, which of course made it all worth it!
His reaction was very sweet and gratifying!
 I love this stocking so much, and plan to make 2 more of Mary Beale's sampler stockings this year, one for my husband and one for myself!
Here it is with my other favorite stocking-my daughter's.
I made this for her when she was little, and I have always loved it so much. I don't know where the pattern came from-possibly one of those Vanessa Ann books, remember those anyone?
So the two stockings went to their new home this year, and I must say I will miss my daughter's. It is one of the things I have  treasured every year when I unwrap it for Christmas.
Sigh!

Both those stockings are absolutely wonderful. I think that I have the one in my stash. You never know how beautiful things are going to come out until you see them stitched. Happy New Year!

They are so beautiful. It can be hard to see your children leave home and make their own nests.
