Sewing Seeds of Joy~

The Bishop Threesome loves Christmas stockings. We have many sets; so many in fact that I can't ever put them all out at the same time. Filling them all is a challenge for any Santa. Luckily for him there a few timeless favorites (such as peanut M & M's and chocolate covered cherries). It wouldn't be Christmas morning without a little candy.

Here is a set of three made by me when we were on a road trip in our motor home. I took my sewing machines and all of its accoutrements and sat up late one night-- stitching into the wee hours~

These are hanging on our china cabinet. No room on the mantel!

The fun is in the details! I used anything I could find at Dollar Tree, with the addition of a few trims I had the good sense to take with me.

Of course, Mrs. Claus needs a stocking too. I had a little scrap of remaining fleece and some trim. Here's a feminine adaptation~

Uh oh! There's not much room in here. 

From tip to toe, I hope your Christmas is perfect!
