‘Tis the season! Last Christmas my big sewing project was making stockings to hang on the mantle at my son’s house. The stockings were quite ornate and had curled up toes. This year I made stockings for myself. With my rustic mantle I decided on a simpler stocking. I had seen some made from beige burlap with cream ruffle. I liked them very much but wanted something with more color. So I came up with my own version and I am quite satisfied with them.
