To keep the blog from dying like it's currently doing or has done, how about we try to post something at least once a week? Who wants to share? Come on you know you have some awesome project that is going to inspire us.
Alright at the risk of ruining the surprise for Cheryl I'm going to show a little glimpse of my almost completed stocking for Aunt Pitty Pat's stocking swap. Earlier this week I got my stocking in the mail from Cheryl and it's AWESOME. Really, you all should be jealous she was my partner. It's okay if you want to shed a few tears because you didn't join the swap or didn't have Cheryl. Now dry your eyes and keep a watch over at APP's for her next swap. It might be a while before she does another, but I can guarantee it will be fun.
Okay, here's the peak at my stocking for Cheryl...
Now Cheryl's stocking for me... is it fair to share her work? Ah, why not. She can come on and add to it. It's still stuffed with all the goodies she sent other then the ornament. I want to be able to hang it on my tree so I took it out of the stocking. I decided to wait on everything else. I figure my husband is deployed so I might as well save some surprises for myself. =) BTW, I took these with my phone so they are on the dark side and the color isn't spot on.
I love that she used random buttons. I like adding buttons to my daughter's clothes to make flowers, butterflies, ect.
Here's a closer look at the snowflake. My favorite part is the little beads on each point.
