I thought that you might like to see my collection of Christmas Stockings. Each one of my sons has one. They are all from a magazine that I used to buy many years ago and I bought it for a long time. It was called Cross Stitch and Country Craft. I haven't seen it in my local newsagents for many years so I don't know if it is still published. I have actually done four stockings but I gave one away. It had a musical theme and also had gold and silver threads worked into it. Its a pity that I never took a photo of it.
This one has a bedroom theme. There are certain things in each room that I love. I love the clown doll on the bed. His hair is all French knots, along with the strings of cranberries, popcorn and cinnamon sticks .
On this one I love the rug on the floor which looks like a proper braided rug, the shaker boxes near the fire and the teddy bear. This one is the lounge room.
Now this one looks like either the library or the office. Santa has just come back from a hard nights work and is exhausted. The things I like in this one are the goose, the train set, car and the night sky.
All three stockings that I have are stockings that you really have to stop and examine. They all have things in them that are interesting and have things that make an interesting room. I love hanging them on my fire place at Christmas.
