Another Check on the Bucket List....

In an earlier post I shared the Christmas stockings that my Mother had knit for my husband, myself and the "kids" (the 4 legged variety) we had at that time. When my daughter was born my Mom was in the the mid stages of Alzheimer's disease. There was no way that she was going to be able to knit stockings for our kids (the 2 legged variety).  I never really learned how to knit well so I had the brilliant idea that I would cross-stitch stockings. 

This is my Daughter's... 


It took me 4 years to finish...

When my son was born I had to complete the tradition that I had started. I really do not remember when I started to cross-stitch his. I think he was old enough to point in a book to which design he liked. Well, he is now 10 and I was determined to finish his stocking this year.

Ta Dah....
It is complete... I can cross this off my bucket list. Two kids... two stockings... When I was diagnosed  I worried about who I would ask to finish his stocking for me. Well that is one worry I can cross off... God knows I have a ton of others to take its place... but I can not wait for Santa to fill up His stocking... made by his Mom... with Love...
