The recipient this time is my eldest son Mark. The making of these stockings all came about because I wanted to make him a grown-up stocking. He is 30 and for years he would not allow me to make him a new stocking. His original one was made by him in red felt and glued together with his name in glued-on glitter. He had a Santa face on it and he had made it all himself. It did not have a loop to hang it up with but a hole in the middle and this year, the felt ripped away, leaving shredded felt. These stockings will all be embelleshed eventually - with bells and probably more gold accents.
Have a really great New Year My FRIEND x x x x who else could I ask when I have a silly question !
