Crazy Quilt Christmas Stocking


 This is a stocking I made as a sample for a class I was teaching.  Everyone in our family has their own Christmas Stocking rooted deep in family tradition so it has just been languishing since I made it.  I have decided to give it away this Christmas to a dear friend who lost all her Christmas decorations, etc in the flood in High River.  I think it will have a good home with her!  I decided though I would take a couple photos before I gave it away - can't remember if I have posted about it before.
It will be a private joke between my friend and I because she has a deep and enduring hatred for rick rack in all forms and I used rick rack to trim out the silkie.  I love the little button snowmen too so included him in the photo here.

This is my favourite seam - the little angels with their spacer bead halos.  I find so many uses for these little spacer beads - can't get enough of them!

I hope my friend will enjoy this stocking and now I have the fun of filling it before I give it to her!
