Today instead of showing you some of my work I am going to brag on my daughter. She is the mother of 3 boys ranging in age from 6 to 13 and 1 very large dog. She has begun felting and haunts the resale shops for old sweaters. Last year she made some neat purses as gifts for teachers, friends, etc. Last night she sent me these pics of Christmas stockings she made for the whole family including Bauer (the very large dog). He is a golden lab with some hound mix and has very long legs. He is loveable and was a rescue dog after her 12 year old golden retriever died a couple of years ago.
The pics (if I can get them all thru) are of her fireplace with the stockings hanging then individual pics of the stockings. I think she did a good job. I told her she is turning into her mother.
Well I didn't get them all thru but enough that you get the idea.
I spent the better paft of the day in our small antique town of Mount Dora where we spend the winter. I hit a few of my favorite stores, had a quick lunch at a local bakery awaiting the opening at 1 pm of the Orlando Weavers Christmas sale held Dec. 4-7. It is not just weavers but all kinds of handiwork. I have gone for the last few years and always come away with some great handmade christmas gifts. I spoke to one of the gals and I think I will join this group in January. Looks like a nice bunch of gals doing lots of things that I like to do. The only disapointment was I thought there would be a lot more felted items and there were just a few this year.
Will just have to felt my own flowers if I want any. Get out that embellisher and get going. It is still in the box I shipped it down in in Oct.

These stockings are so homey and nice. Looks like they could stretch some too, if Santa is feeling extra generous!
