Christmas Stocking

Yes, I know I'm supposed to be scrambling to get those last couple of Christmas presents sewn together but I find myself needing a quick break. I'm also plagued by the inevitable failure because I just don't have enough time.

But I did finish this one!

Jack needed a Christmas stocking and every year for the last four years I always remember too late to make him one. This year, I succeeded in remembering early. I think this is because I actually put the Christmas tree up BEFORE Christmas. Technique - fusible applique. The stocking was made using a free downloadable pattern from McCall's and I designed the applique in EQ7. It is, for those of you who are not history buffs, the Jerusalem Cross, which has been adopted by House Baline as our Dagorhir symbol.
