4th primitve stocking done!!!
This is the 4th primitive stocking...finished. Some of you asked what kind of material I use. I often buy skirts and pants at the goodwill so I can use wool but when that is not available or the right color I do use high quality felt form Jo Ann fabrics. This snowman is for our youngest daughter,15, and she is not wild about the pennys but I tryed to explain that is just one of the things you expect to see on something primitive. She was still growling a little when I was done but she will like it better when they are all hanging beside each other next Christmas.
I have started working on my stocking and it will be the last of the stockings. I am going to then start a tree skirt. I will try to use some of the same designs I think and I did leave out my old quilted one so I have a pattern for the size.
I also have a large coffee table that has always had a table runner to match the stockings so I will have to continue on to make a table mat to go with all the other primitive decorations..lol
I did start to take down some of my snowman decorations yesterday.It really is too early to do so because we normally have lots of snow in February but I was ready to do some cleaning and it just seemed like the right time this year. I am kinda ready to get things back to normal and my youngest is wanting to paint her room before spring so I do have that on the back of my mind too.
It is another cold day here in Ohio but you know we must be getting use to it because I thought it was nice and then I saw that the temperature was only 8 degrees...hummm I really didn't think it seemed that cold. I guess it is true, it is all in what you are use too.
Well, I had better get to work on that last stocking for it will not finish itself. Until next time, be blessed.
