As with every new addition to our family a new stocking must always be made. This year I was really torn as to what I should make. My mother suggested I use an angel. So I had my sister send me a photo of her angel stocking that was made. It is really just beautiful.
The more I thought about it the more I wanted to do a Russian doll. After all that was the theme her baby quilt was that was made by Grandma. (By the way I seem to be unable to write today - it could have something to do with the fighting siblings). So I pulled out the fabric I purchased from Kristen and thought I'd use her design as my template.
So I'll just put it out there, I'm not totally happy with the face but I had a little time pressure to deal with. I finished this stocking at 11:30 pm on Christmas Eve. I was so happy to be done.
I beaded her name like I did with Chas' stocking. I also decided the use her middle name to even the look of the stocking out since her first name is so very long. It's actually longer then Bonnie's given name.
It's hard tot ell but on the belly area I used white beads to outline that little white design. I had a lot of fun creating this little lady.
On a side note I now know why I am just not able to post everything I do or all the funny things that go on in our household. It's definitely not the babies fault. I have broken up at least three fights between the two older kids and it just doesn't seem to end. So until the fighting period ends, which I know could be never, the posts will continue to dwindle. So just hang in there like I will.
