I have a wooden spoon!

Hokays, so I didn't make this - but my mom did! I keep telling her she that she did a *fantastic* job and wanted her project to get some internet love. She thinks "it was nothing - it was from a kit" BUT if anybody has ever done applique work, or have taken on a Bucilla or Mary Maxim kit, you *know* how much time and effort goes into them (plus she made changes and/or improvements!).



This stocking is for my niece, and my mom worked on it for 6 months (pretty much as soon as my sister made her pregnancy public, she started on it!)



She changed a few things - like doing a different backing on the pine-cones, making double-backings for scarves and other pieces that go 'off' of the stocking base, and adding/changing some embroidery lines.



Hope you liked it! Of course after my sister and I saw the stocking, we asked where ours was!

 Smiley She should get lots of internet love!  It is SEW cute!
  I have made similar stockings from the bucilla kits - and though it may come with intstructions it takes FOREVER and she made it even better! My mom made me a felt stocking from a kit when I was a baby and 33 years later I still take it out every year and look at it and think about the time it took, and I'm sure your sister's little one will cherish this as well. 
Great job!

Oh my! That is some BEAUTIFUL work! That kind of detail is soooo impressive, and I know when the baby gets old enough to realize all the work that went into it, it will mean even more. While shes making more for you, ask her to whip one up for me too Smiley
