Embroidery stockings taken to France!!


Hello dear friends
I thought it was time for an
update on the Christmas stockings
I made for the girls.

As you can see this is
Stella's
she's our 'pink fairy'!!


I added some tiny pearls
to the Angel's wings


Aren't her 'Mary Jane' shoes
so sweet


and added a 'Grandpa'
embellishment too!


Darling Zoé is a red girl


I added tiny bronze/gold beads
to her angel's wings
with little stars on the tips.
We all love angel's with
stars don't we!!!!


Red angel has little stars
on the bottom of her skirt
and....
she has black Mary Jane's!


A little yacht to remind
her of Dada (Granpapa).


some shepherds and a
Grandma embellishment!

Thank you dear friends
for popping in to see me,
especially those of you
who pop in often
and leave me such sweet comments!

Take care
and be kind to one another.
Hugs and love
Shane xox

Dearest Shane,

So glad you took these pictures from your beautiful cross stitch embroidery. Such a labor of love and so well personalized too. Great gifts that will become cherished heirlooms over the years!
Thanks for your comforting words. It is tough to deal with such emotional things from across the big oceans... You know all about it too.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Your stockings are adorable! They look like Shepherd's Bush patterns to me... I haven't cross-stitched in about 20 years but just recently bought one of her patterns and am itching to get started.
Yours are so beautiful and I love the addition of the little pearls etc.
Beautiful work!

Astrid Maclean said...

These are delightful, so beautifully done and I love how you have tailored made them to each of your beautiful grandchildren!
Thank you for your visit to my blog and believe it or not, yet Burgundy is a big place but yes it was the Morvan we were. I bet your family will have loved it there, it is so beautiful! It must be hard for you to be so far away from them all, but I guess it makes the visits even more special. I'm a bit in the same boat, my first grand child will be born in October in Australia and I live in the UK, so I have learnt already how hard these good byes are....

Oops, sorry for all the typos, it is still early morning here, I think I need my coffee....

Lovely embroidery!
Thanks for following me at Delights of the Heart.
Love all things French and have visited there three times.
Also have visited New Zealand many years ago for the National Woolcraft Festival.
