Things and Other Things

Well there's been much going on including superstorm Sandy. We fared well here at our home although others in NH did not but nothing compared to those south of us, including my brother in law in CT who just got his power back yesterday. One casualty has been my internet which has not allowed me to blog or do much of anything else on the computer. Comcast says it is a result of the storm and they are working on it-yada yada yada. This morning seems to be a window of opportunity to blog so here I go. I have had this stocking pattern by Camille Roskelley for a couple of years I think since it first came out. Each Christmas I think about making it but never seem to get around to it. Then I saw Lisa's completed stockings and I got inspired and got to it. I am lucky enough to have 3 fireplaces in my house so extra stockings are fun to have at each one so I am all set for Santa. The fabric is Basic Grey Jovial-a Christmas line from last year.

I also started working on this chevron quilt. I had a lot of yellows and a lot of neutral strips so this is a work in progress. 

Don't forget to vote today!


  1. Strangely enough, I was just thinking about buying this pattern to make some Christmas stockings! My youngest son (39) still uses the stocking that I made for him when he was 2. I have offered many times to make him a new one but he says the one he has is just fine. (The boy is very sentimental.) I think if I make him a new, bigger one he probably won't complain since it will be made by his mommmy!

  2. I love your stockings! I have wanted to make them for some time now, but just haven't gotten around to it. They would be the perfect addition to my holiday decor. Your chevron quilt is gorgeous.

  3. Your stockings are so cute - you made a tumbler one too! I love your chevron quilt too!

  4. Your stockings are just beautiful, they'll be so much fun to hang for Christmas. I love the Chevron quilt and the colors are just fabulous. How've you been feeling and is all going well my friend?? Hugs!!

  5. Lovely! All three of the stockings are charming and the yellow chevron is rather inspiring.
    Glad to hear that you made it through that storm ok. Was thinking about you. Hard to imagine all the devastation, even when I see the pictures. My heart goes out to those still struggling.

  6. Love your stockings! And your chevron quilt is going to be beautiful! Glad you made it through Sandy.


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
