Here you have it, my very first sewing project as an adult woman! I must say, making these stockings was very fun and I think I'm hooked. They're not quite done yet. My next project will be cross-stitching our names into each one (don't worry, I've got extra fabric for at least two more:)).
My mom recently passed down her old Singer sewing machine to me. This thing has been around since I was little and probably longer, I'll have to ask my mom just how long. It's a little finicky, sometimes sluggish, a few loose wires, but with a little TLC, we have bonded over these four stockings and I may just name her by the next project. I think I'll be participating in BooMama's Christmas Home Tour, so I'll let you know when you can see them hanging on my mantel. One Christmas task down, many to go! But I'm smiling and loving every minute of it!
