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
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
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

made according to instructions
from the very talented

I love pressies
