|Lace-topped Felt Stocking|
Being without a sewing machine and, also, with very little energy, I have been doing a lot of pottering and fiddling, all of which has led to me spending quite some time looking at Christmas tree decorations. This is quite a departure for me as I don't actually 'do' Christmas. Oh, I give presents to my close family [including Little Sis] but that's about all. Sending Christmas cards is very hit and miss - usually miss. I have absolutely no interest in celebrating what, for me, is a very sad anniversary. [Please don't comment below about it being an important religious festival - I'm well aware of that.]
Anyway, all of that aside, I have been thinking about decorations and this idea came to me. I have lots of tiny lengths of lace and thought how pretty they could be at the top of some little stockings, hanging on a Christmas tree.
