The patterns in the magazine needed to be increased in size which was beyond my printers capabilities & quite possibly mine! So I bought a stocking pattern & cut the pieces out approx two months ago & em sort of left them.
Two days ago I thought I really had to get a move on as I knew my sister would love to have a stocking full of little gifts this Christmas. Could I find the magazine anywhere? No I couldn't, I had a good memory of what the design would look like & with a little jiggery pokery I finished it.
As I said I am always pleased when I have made something & when Mike returned from work I eagerly set upon him.
'Look Michael, I've finished it', 'Oh yes, I see, very good', 'Is that it, is that all you can say', ' What do you want me to say, it's very good Sue will love it', 'Would you like to feel it Michael, give it a squeeze, it's padded I quilted it'! So on & so forth as I followed the poor man around the house.
The conversation finished with the words ( quite possibly an hour later|) 'For Christ sake Joanne put the thing down, you will wear holes in it'
P.S when I say fill the stocking I don't quite mean to the top it is rather large. There will be a few nice gifts in there for her which I have picked up over the past few months. I just need to buy a mug & replace the chocolate Gruffalo which I ate the other day. I shall leave you with a close up of Rudolph. Enjoy your day all xx
