When I was little, my Mum made me a Christmas Stocking. It took her several years as it was put away each year with the Christmas decorations and came out again round about Christmas Eve when she would madly try to finish it. Needless to say, I had to make do with one of my Dad's (clean) socks until it was finished. Anyway, it was worth the wait and I have always been really proud of the finished item:
I enjoyed making this stocking so much that I might have to keep sewing and make one for bubs now... if all goes to plan and bubs doesn't keep us waiting too long, it might even be needed this year!!!
