Then I hung their finished stockings side by side and realized I should have decided on a universal size, because one was tall and skinny and one was short and fat. My sense of perfection could not live with that, so I redid their stockings and have based every stocking I've done since then on that second set.
I have made 8 stockings since then, plus sewn together 5 others, front, back, lining, and trim, usually doing that last bit on Christmas Eve. I do like to procrastinate.
This year I am working on my niece's stocking. Picking the right song took her mom and I weeks, finding the right fabric was just about impossible, but here it is, 19 days till Christmas, and I have pulled out the threads and started over twice and whenever I am sitting in a quiet moment, I hear snip of the song I am sewing.....
Meeting smile after smile........
It's a good thing I am a fan of Christmas music! It is stuck solidly in my head.
