New Years Eve :O)

**** UP DATE****
The Christmas blocks are now in the mail. If you owe postage more than a $1.00.. please pay via Angel Fund Donation button here on the BLOG. It is located on the left side bar... Thank you :O)
Hello Sweet friends :O) I hope your Christmas Holiday was filled full of happiness and joy. I want to thank everyone for not getting to upset with me about not getting your swap blocks sent out last weekend. I now have them all sorted and packaged up to be sent out today. Thank you to everyone that sent along little gifties, cards, fabrics, patterns, sweets and special Pitty gifts as a thank you ....for hosting the swap. It's always nice to received the sweet gestures of appreciation.  
I am waiting a bit for the morning traffic to die down.. it has iced and snowed over nite. I want to be able to take my time going to the post office and back :O) 
This Holiday Season has been a busy one for me.. with losses of loved ones, illness, and helping others in need. I am hoping that the New Year brings bigger and better things for all of us. 
I forgot to mention that The Pitty and I delivered Christmas dinners on the Wed before Christmas. It seems like once the dinners are delivered.. it's only a day or two before the Holiday. That tells me that I am running short on time and better get it in gear ;O)
I have some pretties to show you for the time that my readers so graciously allowed me to have the weekend before Christmas..... I think the projects turned out amazingly fun and adorable. Look see what we did :O)
I might have this wrong in order.. but this is the Youngest Grand-Munchkins stocking.. it's for a little girl. She loves purple.

 This stocking is for the DH. Looks pretty manly don't you think?

 This stocking is for Grand-Munchkin number one girl.. she is a very girly girly :O)

 This stocking is for the Grand-Munchkin number two boy.. he loves playing the veggies and zombies game.. we thought the fabric was fun and interesting for him. He will laugh when he sees it :O)

 This stocking is for Grand-Munchkin boy number one. He is a rock n roll sort of guy. He loves skateboards and motocross bikes.. the fabrics sort of suit his personality... Sort of Hip-ster teen meets Santa :O)

 This stocking is for the Original Munchkin... she loves loves loves it.. I picked out the fabrics for her stocking... she will say no you didn't.. but I will say yes I did.. you wanted a fabric that looked like eyes ;O) LOL

 Each one of the stockings match the personality of each recipient.... My daughter did the hand-stitching and she and I put the blocks together. It was a hard charge to get them done in a couple of days. The nite before we went out to dinner and when we came home we started picking fabrics. The next morning we changed our minds and went on the hunt for more fabrics. Finally after two or three hours we decided on the fabrics shown. I was a slave driver. Each stocking had to be hand cut. We winged the whole project without much of a pattern. Each mofit was cut individually to fit into the stocking. 

I have to tell you the stupid thing I did.. while the DD was getting the heels and toes ready to iron on the stocking fronts I was cutting out the stocking fronts. When we had all the pieces together and ready to sew. The DD was cutting the liners. I was just whipping out the stockings nothing flat.. until I got ready to put the liners in and discovered .... Yes you guessed it!! I forgot to blanket stitch around the toes and heels... We had to do it by hand.. I was not going to take SIX stockings apart at this late stage of construction... They got stitch and the linings went in... AND I think they turned out AWESOME!!!

The stocking below is the one that I made for my partner in the 2012 Stocking swap. She loved it.. her return stocking to me is equally awesome... I still need to get a photo of it for you.... Hopefully later today :O)

Until next time...................
