The Stockings Were Hung...

the goodies baked, the presents wrapped, and the hustle and bustle is finally slowing down just enough for me to catch my breath. We are all ready for Christmas. Hooray!

Speaking of stockings... here is a little peek at the stockings that I made for the girls this year.
I took my inspiration from A Thimble Blossoms pattern but changed the pattern of the sock a bit. I think they turned out pretty darned cute, and more importantly, the girls love them!

To all my family and dear friends, I love you so much. You make my life better, richer, and definitely more colorful! Happy Holidays!

Um... yes. She did!
When you look at her sweet little face, do NOT be fooled. This little girl is N A U G H T Y!
In the span of about 20 minutes, said offender decided that this quilt looked like the perfect chew toy!
When I discovered her misdeed, I may or may not have uttered a few choice words, but needless to say, I was ticked off, really, really ticked off. And of course SHE just looked at me like "what?" ""what did I do?" I made this quilt last year and my kids love it because it is backed in flannel so it is super snuggly   and warm. I'm weighing my options here people. My oldest daughter suggested that I repair it to make it look like a "bite" was taken out of the edge and my husband thinks I should do some sort of patch thing to it. Any suggestions? All I can say is "It's a really good thing she's cute!" SERIOUSLY!!!
