These are a couple of the stockings I have finished for my Christmas in July. I hope you don't mind me sharing these with you this week. I caught on to a great idea last year and wanted to share it with you this year. This may be for you, or maybe not. Just something to ponder.
We exchange a gift with our daughter in laws parents during the Christmas holidays. Usually I weave something special and fill the basket with different types of homemade goodies. Last year, I got caught, was way too busy and ran out of time. Instead of weaving, I made a beautiful stocking and had fun filling it up. This is the idea that I thought I would share with you. Many of us have family, friends and aquaintances that we enjoyed giving a gift to. We often wonder what the heck to give to someone that "has it all." Think outside the box: a stocking makes a great gift that can be cherished for years to come. This can be any type of stocking, large or small, handmade or store bought. You can fill it with just about anything from books of stamps, jewelry, candy, candles, stationary, the list goes on and on. It's fun and it's easy. Think about it when you need to give a gift from the heart. You just can't beat homemade gorgeousness..........well, maybe!
