New holiday stockings

6 01 2017

Here are my most recent Christmas stocking creations.

In the past, I have made stockings mainly for the cats, but this time they were made for two of the kind humans who take such good care of the cats,  just like Dave and Wendy do.  (See their stockings seen HERE.)

Shannon’s was a lot of fun to make and is the only one on which I’ve used different colored flosses for the name.  This fabric was so fun and wacky that I thought the multi-colors would work well.

Since I’m always keeping count, these two bring the total count up to 15.   I hope Santa fills these and all the others with treats and fun every year.

New Kitty Stockings–‘Tis the season

18 12 2015

Well, it’s happened again.  Hang on for the story of Cat Stockings Numbers Ten and Eleven.

In 2015 I welcomed two new members to my extended family and here they are:  the charming brothers, Joliet Jake and Elwood, who are fortunate enough to live with my brother Dave and his wife Wendy.  They have been best buddies with each other since day one.

So, of course, they needed stockings for the Christmas holiday.  Luckily for them, I love to make these.

And a special stocking for Elwood, or Woody, as he is known in his territory:
