 The first Christmas stocking swap I participated in my partner sent me a little tree with ornaments. That was about 10 years ago, and I still remember it.

A favorite handmade gift was a cross stitched picture I made for my father years and years ago. Dad is hard to craft for. He is a carpenter and collects old tools. I found a cross stitch pattern of a bunch of old tools. My mom hung it on the wall with two tools. It is still there.

I pinky promise too! I finally got to the fabric store this week (JoAnn's is having some good sales) and have started work on the stocking. My "main" item is underway as are two other projects. One of which requires a specialty material and tools that I have not used in years and had to buy all new! Cheesy I also have several days off next week so I plan to be right on time!

Squee!!!! Stuff being made for ME!

 pinky promise, no flaking! I have a whole week off work after today and intend to get a lot of crafting  done.   Though some of that time will be used helping get ready for a big family party to celebrate Thanksgiving  and the 60th birthdays of my brother and sister-in-law.

 For years we had a large live tree,  until my mom got tired of the mess and purchase a large fake tree.  We complained about it the first year but it was really a pretty good tree.

With eight children there were a lot of handmade ornaments to put on the tree.   Plus I have fond memories of making Christmas ornaments with my grandmother. Every year we would put the tree together  and then decorate it together as a family.

After all the children moved out of the house my mother got a small tabletop tree that she decorated with  Angels and Raggedy Ann themed ornaments.  After the holidays the tree gets wrapped in a sheet and hauled to the attic until the next year when it comes back down fully decorated and ready to go. A couple years after my mother died I changed the ornaments on the tree but I can't remember what I put on.

 Stockings were an important part of the Christmas morning tradition and ritual. I don't even remember what kind of things my mom put in them other than candy, nuts and tangerines.  I could've done without the tangerines, but with eight stockings to fill, 10 counting hers and Dad's, tangerines helped take up space.
