Here is the Christmas stocking that I made recently. I have had this crocheted pattern for ages and made some like these for my husband and me when we first got married. I added to them as more family members came along. The stocking pictured below is one of a set that I made for my younger daughter and her husband so they could have stockings at their house. (It was already given to her so I can post the picture - Gamecock colors!) Other things I have been working on still need to be a secret so that's all I can say.
I was ready to go to a Christmas luncheon with some quilting friends today and our automatic garage door opener quit working with my car inside so needless to say I was stuck here waiting for a repair person to get here and get it repaired. I'm all set now - Freedom! (It was a major thing with the big spring breaking so it wasn't something I could have handled myself. Don't you hate it when someone comes out and it was something really simple? I know that happens to people.)
Here's a little update on Sydney. We were convinced she didn't know how to ask to go outside when she needed a bathroom break so we tried hanging bells on the door. She will touch them on command to ring them before we go out the door, but I'm not sure she has put 2 and 2 together to understand that she needs to ring them to alert us when she needs to go out. Oh, well, no accidents since the bells went up so I guess that is the main thing. I think she will soon qualify to be a holiday bell ringer in front of one of the stores!
Well, good luck with the holiday preparations. It's a wonderful time of the year, but a very busy time, too!
