2001 and 2003 Christmas Stockings

Kieran's stocking was made from a kitset that I was given by a workmate of Brian's when I was on sent to Dunedin hospital at 25 weeks pregnant and put on bedrest due to a complication.  Kieran was delivered at 28 weeks in June, so I managed to have his stocking made well and truly by December.

It is all hand-stitched, on felt and is about 50cm long.

Two or three years later, in our new house in Edendale, I decided that Brian and I should have stockings as well and I adapted the designs from a magazine.  They are about 30cm long and also made of hand-stitched felt, with attached buttons and some use of metallic threads with the applique.
