After 2 years...

They are actually done!!!! My 2 year long stocking making project is finally done thanks to my MOM. As many of you know I just don't sew but this pottery barn stocking pattern was just too cute to pass up 2 years ago when a group of ladies in my ward decided to make them. I thought why not...I need to try something new and have always wanted hand made stockings for the family. Well, I got in way over my head and kept putting the project off. This was a multi step process that I kept dragging on and am very thankful to a couple of my friends that at least kept me going...you know who you are. I did learn so many new things which I guess was the point. Me...Cheryl actually did some hand stitching and made her own appliques. But putting these things together just seemed impossible and my Mom is always up for a good challenge and is luckily there to bail me out. It feels just great to look at this finished project and I just had to share it. Kylee has been one of my biggest fans as she is just in love with her stocking. Now it is time to wait and see if they get filled. Hope you all are enjoying the season. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

They look great. I really like them. I can see why they took so long, they look complicated. Doesn't it feel nice to have that checked off your list? Way to go.

Way to go! I think projects like these make me crazy because the kids about make it impossible to get it done. I always eat 5 candy bars before I get started because I just don't want to jump into it.

Those are sooo cute! Good job hanging in there. The boys silky blankets were a project that I started and your mom finished! She is so great!
