Week 21 #19 Homemade


Over 65 years ago my husband’s mother started a tradition of making Christmas stockings for each of her children and when her grandchildren started coming along she also made their Christmas stockings. When our first grandchild was born over 14 years ago I decided to follow suit and carry on her tradition. Our 7th grandchild was born earlier this year and I just finished making his stocking a few weeks ago. I have enjoyed putting every single stitch in each grandchilds stocking, personalizing them with their name and adding a fun stuffed ornament on the front. Who knows, I may live long enough to make my great grandchildren stockings too!

I have included my husband’s stocking hanging along side my grandson’s.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
