Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to Day 1 of our “Twelve Days of Christmas” blog series! We hope that you’ll check in each day for a visit, since each new day will feature new design, a fun holiday project, or a yummy recipe. Oh, and giveaways too! (Don’t forget to enter for a chance to win something nice!)
Today we are excited to feature a set of four new Christmas stocking designs, meant for people who celebrate Christmas as our family did when Sharon and I were children. Our nephew-in-law wants to be a youth minister in their church, so these new designs are dedicated to their little family.
I listened to this beautiful song many times as I sketched and stitched the stockings for Thea, Millie, Alyssa, and Nick-
I began this project by making stockings with angels for Thea and Millie. A Bethlehem star was perfect to brighten their stockings.
In keeping with the theme, I decided to create “O Holy Night” to celebrate the Nativity. Alyssa’s new baby, Amelia Michelle (Millie), was born on November 1, so Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus were perfect for Alyssa’s stocking.
Then I thought about kids’ singing “Away in a Manger”, all dressed up for the Christmas pageant at church, with Baby Jesus and the animals who spent Christmas Eve in the stable. Nick’s stocking needed to be “manly”, so I used lots of blue to make his stocking.
All four of these patterns are available in our shop and they’re really fun to make!
Update- Congratulations to Donna M, winner of the Nativity stocking giveaway!
