The Stockings were Hung

I had every intention of finishing Sasha's stocking with plenty of time to spare... which sounded like a good plan until it intersected reality. But I finished the stocking before midnight on Christmas Eve, so that counts as on-time, right?!?

Even with the last-minute panic, I'm pretty pleased with the results. I love how the design honors lots of different pieces of Sasha's heritage! Steve suggested using colors and detail from the flag of Kazakhstan and I included a babushka on Sash's snowlady as a nod to Sasha's probable Russian ethnic heritage.

So, before Christmas officially hit, all five stockings were hung by the chimney with care. Boy did that feel good :)

Mary, any compliment from you on a craft I make is worth its weight in gold! Oh, wait, I guess compliments don't weigh anything... Um, Mary, thanks for the compliment - from a super crafty mom like you, it means a lot
