Stockings and Mittens and Stockings and Mittens!

~~Sold~~
It has been a pretty hectic fall so far!  So, what ELSE is new!  I have no one to blame but myself, as I've been listing all my tucks on eBay, making them once they get a bid.  This works fine when I get early bids, but then you have the last minute bidders and the second chancers!  And eight or ten sets to make quickly turns into 15 or 20 sets!  So, needless to say, I am EXHAUSTED.  I actually dozed off while sitting at the traffic light one day this week.  Fortunately, my son was in the car with me and yelled at me!  LOL!  Not a good thing to be driving this tired!

~~Sold~~
 Anyway, except for a few special orders off my blog, I am pretty much caught up, and have slowed down listing on eBay.  So, I thought I'd finish up these stocking/mitten sets that I had traced out about two weeks ago!  It was a nice change to work on some things that I wanted to work on.  Hopefully, I'll be able to finish up a few other things I've started this year, but have had to put on the back burner for lack of time!

 I finished up five sets of these stocking/mitten sets.  These have always been a good seller for me.  As soon as I hear back from a customer who was asking about them, I will list what I have left.

 Lots of pretty Christmas colors!  These are stuffed with scrap fabrics, which gives them a nice, firm and heavy feel.  Everything is tucked in nice and snug.  And I've pinned a rusty safety pin on the right side of each, which serves as a nice "grab" for a hanger.  They also look great hanging on the wall, as you can see in the photo below!

~~Sold~~
 So, do YOU have a favorite set?  Hope you all stay nice and warm.  We've heard so much about the bad storm system that will hit Alaska and eventually the mid-western states, especially those up north.  I think it will miss us here in the pacific northwest.  Guess we're stuck with rain and more rain!  Again, what ELSE is new!  :)  Have a great week, everyone...thanks for dropping by today!  ~~Annie

  1. It would be hard to pick a favorite. The Christmas tree against the red sure looks pretty but I love the old fashioned quilted look, too. I need to get busy and make some. I don't use Ebay but love Etsy. I have several of your things in my favs. Hope you list some of these. Enjoy your day....REST! Hugs, Diane

  3. Hi Annie! You have been a busy gal! Your mittens and stockings are so cute...as always! Send some of that rain to Oklahoma, would you, please? We need it! Take Care of yourself and take a moment and breathe...and sleep! Dozing off at the light in traffic is not a good thing to do. You would get after your kids for doing that, you know, lol! It is so easy to get over loaded though, especially this time of year! God Bless!
