Finish: QAYG Stockings

Over the weekend, I finished our QAYG Christmas Stockings!

QAYG Christmas Stockings Complete

I followed the Imagine Gnats Falling Flakes Stocking Tutorial fairly closely. The only change was that I cut strips instead of wedges of the fabric for more freedom in improvisation.

Fancy QAYG

The stockings also have a little fancy QAYG stitching, instead of only straight lines.

C picked which color (green vs. blue) he like better, and I stitched our initials on with felt.

I took these pictures by pinning the stockings to the fence in the back of our parking lot. While I was snapping away, a guy who lives in my building came out to his car, and hollered out that he liked the stockings. I hollered a thanks back, and he drove off. It made me smile – I don’t know that many of my neighbors that well yet.

WordPress alerted me to the fact that today is my 2 year blogoversary! I can’t really believe that it has been two years since I started writing in this space. I’m really thankful for the community of crafty people I’m getting to know!
