    Glad to have more needlecrafting programming @ NZ… looking forward to the Stocking challenge too.

    November 5, 2019

    So happy for the STITCH IT! SISTERS – their video was TERRIFIC. I just love all the stocking from Nancy’s book with all the stockings showing us what can be done. I made some stockings in the early 90s that were quilted and lined and gave them away to 3 little girls who are grown up now. I wish I could find that pattern again as it made a really large stocking. I have to assume that my email I get is “the NZP enews”. I loved all the products and some of them were on sale…wow.

    We don’t decorate with stockings and Santa based decorations.
    We praise the birth of Jesus. I will try to make a stocking to be filled for a family I know of in need…tricky as it will be filled with food and blanket throws for the small people in this family. No matter if I make the stocking they will receive the food and blanket throws (I already made 2 of the 4 needed).
