Nailed it.

Last night I finished another patchwork Christmas stocking.  Here's the little gingerbread boy.

And, drumroll please...., when I sewed the little hangy loopy thing, I got it right the FIRST time.  Oh, yes, it's the little things :).

But, tonight I don't feel like sewing.  I feel like reading.  I browsed at the library for at least 30 minutes today trying to find the right book.  Nothing.  Now, after doing some looking online, I have 2 good ones on request.

So, I guess it's the couch for me tonight.  I'll be posting an update on the hand quilting soon!


  1. I love your stockings! That gingerbread man is too adorable...

  2. Rachel....Your stocking are precious. I have made then for all of my children as well as my grandchildren and loved every minute of it. The little gingerman is so cute. I really like the blend of colors in the three stockings.

  3. I am so in love with the font you chose, its great!

  4. Thanks, ladies! Yes, they have been a true pleasure to make. Stitching memories.

  5. I know how you feel about browsing the library and coming up empty. I couldn't find any good adult books so I borrowed The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall from my mom. It was great! It may be a good read-aloud-bedtime novel for you and your daughter. She also wrote a sequel titled The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, which is also great. =]

    PS, I am loving the stockings!

  6. Rachel - they look SO great! I love that you combined what's traditional about a Christmas stocking with those cool, modern, colorful fabrics. As always, wonderful job -very inspiring!!!

  7. The stockings are beautiful! Way to go on getting things done way ahead of time.
