I want to make stockings.
Not in October when I will next think about it and feel too busy and have current Christmas projects that need finishing and panic and worry and get overwhelmed so it won't happen!!!!
Now, while January is boring and grey and needs some color. So I went to my favorite quilt shop, found out that their Moda Christmas line was no longer on sale, was taken pity on by the sweet ladies that work there, and got a few bits for the sale price anyway! Score!
I have loved this one for months!And the holly berries and festive red snowflakes will all blend nicely with Christmas fabric I already have!
I want to make scrappy stockings for all of us, similar to these and these. W has his from childhood, and I made the girls stockings last year but it was late, I was tired, and I didn't cut them out with a seam allowance so they're too small to actually fit anything in them! oops!
So, I'm trying to stay focused, not dream of beautiful Spring colors and lovely things to make for my girls and instead, make Christmas stockings!
