Nice stocking Ally.  Have fun on your trips.  Australia is a place I have often wanted to visit.  

Comment by Ally Bryant on Sunday

Grandson asked me to make him a more grownup stocking. So made it and took it down to him because we were going to watch him play hockey.

Trying to decided what clothes to take, as we are dealing with two different climates, as after Christmas we are off to Australia to visit our niece and my online friend who I met about 10 years ago on LOAQ on CT, this will be our second visit to Australia.

Thanks to our son being a pilot helps with the travel expenses otherwise we wouldn't be able to do it. And decided that seeing Paul had such a bad winter with his two op and then ran into problems, now he is feeling good NOW was the time to go!

Anyone seen my Mojo? It sneaked out of the house and I'm afraid the Coyotes got it. Just dragging here. Of course, it's probably just my usual Christmas Bah's kicking in. I had so many great intentions...nothing out of reason - just small do-able things and they've left me sitting in a funk. 

Toe is improving - albeit v.e.r.y slowly. Fighting with the mail-order pharmacy over prescriptions - why do I have to be the middle woman? Can't the pharmacy and the doctor's office resolve their own disputes? Grrr...

Ladies, your projects look lovely! Ally, off to HK again? Safe travels and enjoy yourselves. Not much white S**T here, thankfully! Just cold. Do you know that "Cold" is another 4 letter word???

Here is a pic of 2 of the Christmas stockings I made this year.  I made 8 altogether.

Here is a pic of the lining fabric:

I bought this fabric in either 2005 or 2006 so it was way past time for me to use it!

Only 15 day and we are hoping to take off for HK to visit our son and family for Christmas, so busy right now getting the gift bought and wrapped for my DD and family, we get together on Sunday.

I am getting ready to make some new Christmas stockings.  I wanted to add something besides just a name on the cuff so I went on to Embroidery Library's site yesterday & found some cute Christmas motifs that should work.  I bought the fabric I'm going to use back when I worked at that quilt store in Las Vegas & I quit working there in 2007 so I guess it is about time to use it!

I'm happy to hear that your trip to IN went well Barbara.  The weather seems to unpredictable that one never knows that they might encounter.

We had the blizzard here, too. About 12" of the white stuff and terrible winds. I lost power for a couple of hours. I was peasantly surprised that it came on after the two hours as the storm was still raging. Those repair crews must be superhumans. I had to clear a path on the deck for the dog. It was higher than her belly and then some. Also made sure the furnace vent was clear. 

Glad she at least helped with the dishes, Janet. I hate the cleanup before and after a big family meal but it's well worth having them home. My older son drove us to younger son and DIL's home in southern Indiana. We came home on Saturday so avoided the bad weather. I didn't even go to church Sunday thinking the bad stuff would start here sooner.

Have a happy.

I agree wholeheartedly Debbi!  At least this time Jannaka did get up & do the dishes.  In the past they have all brought their plates to the sink & then left me to clean up the mess.  Good thing Larry helps or I would have rebelled years ago.  

We ended up dealing with a blizzard yesterday.  Now the sun is shining & it is actually quite pretty to look at.  Our power kept going on & off which was a bit unnerving too.  If it is this bad in Nov, I hate to think what January is going to be like!

Janet - my thoughts on cooking holiday meals for the foreseeable future ... it's for the birds! Hahaha! I think I'm ready to start eating holiday meals at restaurants. I know the food will not be as good; but, I think it would be worth it. Honestly, between cleaning, all the cooking and the preparation for guests (along with all the normal daily activities), it takes me a day or two to recuperate. I'm not sure it's worth it! LOL
