A Christmas stocking for our wee little grandie-girl.
I found the fox face on a free coloring page from the internet and sized it to fit. The woodland snow scene is the co-ordinating print that goes with the main animal print. The lace trim was knitted by my maternal grandmother (therefore our little one's great-great-grandma).
- There might be enough time for you to stitch one of THESE before Halloween (would make a nice fall decoration anyway).
- Have a scroll through the amazing beaded creations by THIS artist!
- I love the work of THIS artist!
- THIS is a great tip for crocheters seeking to work in ends of yarn as you go.
- Making one of THESE would not only be warm and cozy, but also would use up a whole bunch of yarn scraps! Found via Canadian Needle Nana (thank you!)
Today the quote is from Meryl Streep..."Let no one remove the wrinkles from my forehead, obtained through amazement at the beauty of life; or those of my mouth, which show how much I laughed and how much I kissed; nor the dark circles of my eyes: in them is the memory of how much I cried. They are mine and they are beautiful"
The bead artist's work is amazing. Also the broken English of the intro. And the medal advertised for TFG. I'm really wondering about the origin of this site. It may have read better in the original Russian!ReplyDelete
I've always been intrigued by beaded art so it caught my eye.Delete
Who knows the origin and translations aren't always accurate.
Isla's stocking is really lovely--and adding that lace was a wonderful idea...nice work hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
The lace doesn't exactly 'match' but I wanted to use it anyway.Delete
Such a sweet little stocking with a big story. Also appreciate you introducing me to the Canadian Nana. Lovely, interesting & informative blog I've bookmarked.ReplyDelete
You're welcome for the introduction to Canadian Needle Nana - she's always interesting and I'm sure you will enjoy your visits with her. And glad you like the stocking too!Delete
What a beautiful stocking. I am not sure I knew your little granddaughter's name.... it is the same as me new grandniece! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Awww that's nice - congratulations!Delete
Wow, that stocking is gorgeous, and while you don't think the lace quite matches, I think it looks like icicles that have formed on the edge of my eaves (yep that cold here right now).ReplyDelete
I never thought of icicles!Delete
Adorable stocking, MaryAnne! You are amazing with how many Christmas things you’ve already finished this year!ReplyDelete
I try to make most of my gifts so it takes me awhile!Delete
How lovely that you've used the lace from your grandmother - makes it a true heirloom! xxReplyDelete
I've held onto the lace my grandma made forever in hopes of finding uses for it and thought it would work on the stocking.Delete
Sherry of createology: Hello MA: Your stocking for Isla is wonderful. I adore the fact that you used vintage knitted lace from Great Grandma. This will add to the Heirloom gift. I also adore the artist who beads and who makes such soft dolls/animals. I agree with Meryl Streeps quote…I have earned my wrinkles and scars and I am happy to have them share stories of my life.ReplyDelete
I make the stocking - the parents have to fill it!Delete
A beautiful and sweet stocking for the little one. One day she will appreciate the work of her family members and remember them with love.ReplyDelete
All our grandies (4 of them) have stockings made by Grandma...hopefully they'll last them into adulthood.Delete
Such a sweet stocking, especially with the added lace from your grandmother, a true treasure.ReplyDelete
I made the stocking, now the parents have to fill it. I was glad I could use some of my Grandma's knitted lace for something for her.Delete
