Stockings hung with love

Good Morning  and Merry Christmas!  This is such a magical time.  Everyone is bustling around and having parties and trying to get projects done for Christmas.  We have some wonderful news to share with our fellow bloggers.  Jackie (one of the Shabby Gals) and our oldest daughter,  just had her babies, Max Thomas and Elsa Irene and all is well.  Jackie came thru with flying colors and so did the twins.  We are so blessed that everyone is healthy and doing well.  What a Christmas present!!!!!
I have been making the stockings for my grandchildren so I will be busy making 2 new ones for next year, they will just have to be patient with grandma.  So on to my project that are really a little old but every time I hang them, they are hung with love.  I spent a lot of time on them but they were fun to do.  It originally started with a kit that was a printed cross stitch pattern that made into a stocking, that was for Jackie when she was very little.  I enjoyed that so much that I made a cross stitch  stocking for both me and her dad, that was also a pattern out of one of the Cross Stitch magazines.  Each of our children had a cross stitch stocking (which we had 5 children) that I hung every Christmas, but now I am down to hanging 4.  I had a total of 7.  Here they are:

 One for me:
 One for my hubby:
 We have 2 children that I still hang their stockings.  When they find their better half I will give their stockings to them.  Tedd's stocking I created from various patterns.
 Matthew's stocking I also created from various patterns.  These were so much fun to do but they took some time.
And here they are, hung with love.
Merry Christmas everyone!  Until next time, Dianne......
