Cross-stitched Christmas Stockings

These stockings are Charles Ross patterns and were all stitched in the 80s. I made Gordon’s stocking first, then he cross stitched all the rest — I sewed them together. It’s funny — the decorative alphabet letters provided in the booklet are all upper case. Elliott’s name was too long to fit in the space, so I had to draft some lower case letters.

Poor Emily had to wait until she was five before she finally got her real stocking (in the interim she made do with a ballerina stocking). Fortunately, I was able to find the girl pattern and I had enough of the original lining fabric and trim to finish Emily’s stocking.
