Christmas Busy

After a fantastic week away with friends in glorious Tasmania, I've been non-stop stitching
& sewing for the Christmas rush on my burlap stockings.

The grey toile stockings have been very popular......love toile fabrics and the dark grey &
flax tones in this fabric are one of my favourites.




The plain embroidered burlap stockings are also popular....simple and rustic
with the texture of the burla,p yet elegant with the red embroidery
on the vintage linen patch.





Another popular choice is the red toile stockings.....






All stockings are fully lined and can of course be personalised with names or 
words of choice which is definately the appeal of buying 
from handmade markets such as Etsy!

The lovely Cheryl from Sweet Young Journey purchase some of my custom made stockings
before Christmas 2011. You can read her post here & featured guest post at Dreamy Whites.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating this holiday!

warmest wishes

  2. OH! I love the different stockings you have made! Linen is so gorgeous, and what a lovely idea to use it for stockings! :) Burlap is also such a great choice, I think!

    I hope you had a wonderful time in Tasmania on vacation, and that you have a great rest of your week! Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia? I know in Canada, they celebrate it in October...

    Blessings to you,
    Jenni

  3. Hi Kerry,
    Thanks so much for the comment!! You have such a pretty blog! I wanted to point out (about the whole wheat pastry) something about the triple berry galettes if you make them - make sure you combine the canola oil & melted butter really well & stir from time to time during its freezing time. The first time I tried this pastry I didn't stir it good & the pastry was a little too "canola/DHA tasting" if you know what I mean. When it's blended nicely.. it makes a great alternative to white flour pastry! Add lots of honey!
