Christmas Stockings

stocking top one

 

 

I’ve been having fun creating a gift for my daughter-in-law, Michelle.

From tip to toe…it was fun designing something for Christmas.

With leaves and flower centers covered with needle felted wool roving mixed with angelina.

And tiny beads in the center to add just another touch of sparkle.

She loves sunflowers and while it’s not exactly traditional Christmas, this is what she asked me to make.

 And after I finished hers, I made the other one she asked for…one for the dog.   All sparkly and shiny and it even has a squirrel…Birdy’s favorite playmate!!!

That’s Birdy on the left with the little squirrel at the bottom.  I think Birdy’s going to love it almost as much as Michelle and Mike.  Don’t you think?   Now I’d better get this in the mail before they see this post!

    Love the stockings!

    Thanks for visiting A Quilter’s Journey Back in Time. I was unable to answer your question, as you are set up as “no reply.” So, here is the answer to your question. The Dear Jane quilt has 169 blocks in the body of the quilt and the border has about 108 triangles. I have a long way to go! 🙂
