Merry Christmas & My Bucilla Stocking

Okay Gals, Christmas is almost here. 

AND my good news is, I'm almost ready.  You do remember I was having problems finding gifts for my daughter.  But I did.  Now, I just have to wrap presents.  Yep, I put that off until I have a pile of presents instead of wrapping as I get them. 

In the meanwhile, I haven't been doing any sewing.  It sure feels good to give it a rest for the month of December. 

What I have been working on is a Bucilla stocking.  
My sister taught me to write my name on tissue paper and then embroider it.
Then gently rip it off!  Easy Pleasy!
I've loved every minute I've worked on this stocking. Believe me it takes a LOT of minutes to complete these stockings, so it won't be finished for this year.  Last night I just finished  the snowman. 
Here's what it should look like when it's finished. (Only with my name - not Carolyn's LOL!)
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. 

John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
