The stockings were hung

The stockings were hung, on the back fence with care... hehe

I took the opportunity for a photo shoot outside today, the weather in Portland has been amazing, gorgeous, sunny, warm... I am starting to think I don't really live in Portland...

I finished my family stockings today!  I am so excited about them, you have no idea.  I had the best time hand quilting them all over the weekend.  Here they are all ready to be stuffed with goodies in December!
Again, I used the pattern {Merry} which you can instantly download from the Thimble Blossoms shop!  It's a great pattern.  I embellished it by adding names to my stockings, so I had to finish the cuff a bit differently, but it wasn't difficult.
My first time doing english paper piecing using hexagons, so fun!
Ric rac cuffs, so cute :)
This Kate Spain fabric is on the back of all of them
And the inside of them is aqua polkadots
Let it be December, then I can hang these up!!
