Well I lost the friendly competition my mom and I had going as to who could finish their Christmas stocking first.
When December hit and I looked at my list of things I needed to get done and how much I still had to go on Thumper’s stocking and I knew I just didn’t have it in me.
I felt pangs of mother’s guilt all season when Thumper would ask “Where’s mine mom?” Or randomly announce to anyone who came “Me no ocking” (translation I don’t have a stocking).
But it is a new year and a time to set new resolutions and I will try yet again to have it finished before next Christmas! (hopefully my readers don’t get sick of the monthly updates!)
Here is my progress after a year:
For fun I also thought I would throw in an up close shot of the Christmas stocking my mom did for my SIL. I am hoping I can convince her to show us a picture of all 10 she has made! It was pretty neat to see all the ones that were home up for Christmas this year.
