Deck The Halls Sunday!

Hello All!
Welcome to my festive blog hop to share out holiday
decorations and gifts made by hand and heart.

I have been away over a week to visit my family,
and new grandson.I was lucky enough to also have time to create
this little stocking for my Jane Austen tree.

At the moment it is filled with vintage sheet music and text
with text from some of Jane's own stories.

I used felt for the main stocking, some vintage lace,
ribbon and trim as well as a vintage rhinestone to make it.
I used embroidery floss to sew a blanket stitch around the stocking.
Then I sugared it up with some Martha Stewart's glitters. Oh how I love glitter!

I do so love creating gifts and decorations myself. As I am doing this post, my sister is working on a gorgeous necklace. It is like the North Pole here with us crafting away!
What are you creating for the holidays?

If you would like to join in Deck The Halls Sunday and share what you are creating for the holiday, just join in with Linky tools below and I will come and visit you.

Hi, Terri, the stocking is just gorgeous. The colors are so pretty together, the whole tree must be beautiful. I have a bunch of patterns on the way to me from several of my blogging friends and I can't wait to get started on them.

Your Christmas stocking ornament is really cute. Your tree is going to look fabulous with all the Jane Austen-inspired decorations :) :) I'm making homemade Christmas gifts this year. I'll be bringing out the ornaments soon, too :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
