Christmas Stocking Swap

Today I received beautiful Strip Christmas Stocking from Judy Sinclair. This was a swap on Yahoo's Scrappy Quilts Group. I'm thrilled. I didn't go through the stocking to see what is in it but I did notice a much needed book of sewing needles (her elves must have been poking around my sewing things) and some gorgeous fabrics poking over the top of the stocking.

I hung it by my fireplace and saving (well trying) it for Christmas morning to go through it. The only hook was the ones the fire tools are hanging from...but since the past 12 years now we've had gas logs and no longer burn wood, the tools are no longer used so the stocking won't be disturbed.

Oh it looks so festive and FULL!!
No way could I wait. I bow to your WILL POWER!
We were in NN today. Not really bad. Seems a lot of folks stayed home or were not buying loads as they did last year. We are about done, of course I have to finish up some sewing stuff!!
