Day 251: Stockings Hung with Care

image

Alright, so we’re not actually the country folk that have a chimney, but I promise that these socks were hung with care.

My Christmasy homemaker goal includes making stockings for me, Kit, Isabella and Tybalt. Yes, animals need stockings too! I haven’t fully decided if I want to make basic patterns and embroider fancy things on them, make patchwork stockings, or revamp an old sweater or pillow case into something fresh.

Can you tell that I have already been perusing Pinterest for ideas? I told Kit that it will be some years down the road before I feel confident enough to do this. A girl can dream for now though!

Throughout the years we have been together Kit and I have been slowly making our Xmas decorations more and more personal.
Mostly in the sense of buying or making ornaments for our Christmas tree. Short term, we want to up the ante on our lawn decorations.
