December ALYOF Goal: Stocking time!

I didn't make my November A Lovely Year of Finishes goal (I think it's because December snuck up so quickly after Thanksgiving!). So I'm upgrading my December actually finish my new baby's stocking.

Here are the four we have right now, on our freshly decorated mantel:
 ( best friend created the art hanging in the photo there--isn't she talented?!)

Little B's stocking will have a blue cuff and a red sock. I dropped the cuff fabric off with my embroiderer friend on Friday. Now it's time to get the rest of the stocking quilted! I'm making this my December goal because I can see getting pushed to the bottom of my to-do list as the holidays get closer. So here we go!

And, before I go, here's a sneak peek at what I have been working on--finishing my tree skirt. I finished quilting it on Saturday and stitched the binding on. I've got about half the hand stitching of the binding left!


  1. Your mantle and tree skirt look so pretty. Congratulations on the arrival of your little one. What did you name him?

  2. mantle and tree skirt are so nice. look at those points.
