Fulfilling a Promise

So, I mentioned my sister's sister-in-law (EBG) a couple of posts ago.  Last year, she contacted me shortly after Thanksgiving about making Christmas stockings for her and her husband.  I told her my typical price, but offered a significant discount since she's nearly family. She agreed and I promised delivery before the following Christmas. 

Then news arrived that EBG had been notified that she was going to adopt a baby over the summer.  I knew I needed to make the new baby a stocking as well at no charge.  First, I chose the fabrics and then I cross-stitched the name plates.

Waiting for assembly
Here are the final projects:

The package went out in the mail this afternoon.  I expect it to be delivered on Monday.  

I have another stocking to make this year - my brother and his wife had another baby girl. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until after the semester is over since it doesn't have to be there until December 22nd and I have two other projects for special little ones whose birthdays are well before Christmas.


  1. They are lovely! I know Eniko will love them. :)

  2. Seriously, these are great. I love Eniko's.

  3. They're even better in person! (Ko's is my fave, too)

  4. They're wonderful! I'm sure they'll be treasured for many years to come. :)
