Christmas Stocking Exchange

Here's the Christmas stocking and gifts I shipped off on the 19th to my secret exchange partner. I hope she likes it.

The front of my stocking with the bottom hidden as not to give away the recipient.

the back of the stocking, not a very good picture. This is dark red velvet embossed with holly leaves.
A pampering gift - bath salts, green tea soap and a bath bomb.

Ornaments for the tree.

First, I want to thank everyone for the lovely welcoming comments. I very much appreciate them all.

Second, my stocking is finished! I will be putting up pictures in the next couple of days or as soon as my personal photographer is available.

Until then here's a picture of one of the trees in my backyard.

Another yippee, we are finally getting some cooler weather. It was 85 degrees today and but now a cold front has moved in and it's barely 65 degrees with only a high in the 50s tomorrow.

The Christmas Stocking Exchange

I have finally decided on my stocking design. The front is embroidered with a oh so cute pattern from here. The back is either going to be quilted or embossed velvet, not sure which yet.

Here are some pictures of my progress thus far.
