I know I promised more about the Houston show in my last blog post but I'm on to other things right now and am excited about a tutorial from Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I've been making Christmas stockings out of silk scraps from a project my former quilting buddy and I made eight years ago.
I've been embroidering them in the style of Victorian crazy quilts and embellishing with sparkly clear glass beads.

This is my second foray into Christmas stockings this year - I made a magic one for our new granddaughter during the summer. It is six inches long but when Santa fills it on Christmas eve it magically grows to hold all the gifts.
