I Can Almost Cross it Off My List....
I have a list of things that I want to get done before Christmas gets here. Some of the things I've gotten done (shopping is a big one) and some I haven't started yet (we still are debating the real/fake tree thing). But I am SO CLOSE to having one more thing crossed off my list! These puppies...

From left to right we have stockings for Little Bug, Baby Girl and Red. I bought a bunch of coordinating fabrics and then they each got to pick the one they liked best. You can't tell from the picture here, but I machine quilted the fronts of each stocking with a gold thread. It was a lot of fun for me. Now I just need to get mine and Hubby's done! I might work on it tonight... or not. Maybe I'll just throw in a movie and eat lots and lots of candy... because that's on my list too... no really! Right here... look... #23 - Watch a movie and eat lots and lots of candy. I'm all about getting these things crossed off my list as soon as possible...

By the way, the first devotional is up at the OTHER BLOG. Remember, this is a simple, short, mini devotional. Meant to take just a few minutes. But, I still think it will be a wonderful thing. Head on over and check it out if you get a chance. I'll post a new one each day...

I love the stockings! I hope you can get yours and your hubby's made too! I want to make a stocking for my sweet new daughter-in-law, to hang up in my house with all the rest of the family stockings! I had to buy a new sewing machine (about two months ago), and I can't stand reading the owner's manual and learning a new machine...but I better stop procrastinatin', huh? I'M FOOLISH!
