Adding labels...

Quite some time ago my daughter suggested I label the posts here on my Christmas blog so that people could find recipes and crafts more easily. So, I am finally getting around to doing so, and am adding labels to both my blogs. It's going to take some time, but I think in the end it will be helpful to my readers -- and to me as well. Stay tuned...

Most recent crocheted stocking

I neglected to post this picture before Christmas 2009. I have been making these for my grandchildren for several years now as the new babies come along. This is the most recent one. I make some in the dark green and some in the dark red and put a little embroidered banner on each one with their name. (As you can see, I did this one in both red and green. Sometimes I add touches of cream as well.)

These stockings may be a little small to be the ones the kids will eventually hang on Christmas Eve, but they do stretch, and they make nice wall decor anyway. I think one of my daughters does use these as the ones to hang on Christmas Eve. When I give these, I have been filling them full of baby socks -- pastels for girls and mini athletic socks for boys.
