My Garland, for My Little Obsessions

I made all of these Christmas Stockings last year, and just never got around to make the I-cord to hang them on the mantel. I love them. I love the colors, I love every little stitch about them.

Actually, I love the whole mantle this year. Every year I decorate it a bit differently. My Purl Gurl friend Joanne gave me the little red beaded bag on the right hand side of the mantle... LOVE the color!!! I found the 'Merry Christmas' in Bed Bath & B... for a song.... then my little collection of sheep (not all of them mind you) and my snowmen... LOVE my snowmen too...Let's not forget Rodney Reindeer... brings me back to the 80's...

Ahhhhhhhhhh My little happy place.... I'd like to make some mini sweaters and mini mittens for next year...

THAT is the sweetest thing ever! How talented you are. Are those the stockings that Santa will fill? Tic-tacs, anyone?

Note on comment posting: OMGosh, the word verification is "mudarse." I'm sorry, but that is too funny!!

Awww thanks for all the nice compliments...

These are for decoration only.... though I won't forget to check them for any odd little gifty that Santa may choose to leave... a Chibi Needle...a gift card to my LYS, some stitch markers, or a nice crisp $20 bill to shop with.... a myriad of things could go in there....

Merry Christmas!!
