At the beginning of fall, I was offered an awesome commission job that I quickly jumped on. A local lady has been hanging on to these hand pieced crazy quilt stockings & vests that her mother was making for each child/grandchild/great-grandchild in the family. She sadly died over 10 years ago before completing them. She was also someone who did handcrafts for a living.
I have been working like crazy to get them done. There are 7 stockings and 2 vests. Each stocking takes about 6 hours to embroider. I’m going to begin assembling them today. I haven’t begun the 2 vests yet but I should have them embroidered by late next week. My goal is to have all of them finished by the beginning of December.
It snowed this week and local radio stations have begun playing Christmas music which has helped with my holiday spirit.
I just hope that I’m not all Christmas’ed out before December even gets here.
Here are some photos of the in-progress stockings (click to see more detailed photos on my Flickr):
And as always, Zoe had to crash my photo shoot.
