… well, besides using my cute walking cane today (you can read about the walking cane here), I’m trying to figure out what to post on this blog. I did have other plans for today, but here I am <sigh> So, just what am I doing these days???
Well, I have been fruitful lately, finishing several cross stitch projects. Still have a couple of Christmas stockings I have to finish (the cross stitch portion is done). Just have to turn them into stockings – not my favorite part.
When my first grandchild was born (32 years ago – WOW) I cross stitched a birth sampler and a Christmas stocking.
Obviously not thinking ahead very well. BECAUSE…… what you do for one you have to do for all the rest. Then – great-grandchildren started arriving. Don’t misunderstand. I adore having all the grandchildren, grandchildren-in-laws AND the great-grandchildren.
At this rate I’ll be stitching stockings from my coffin 😮
Too funny. I’m a grandmother also and failed to think ahead either. I love my grands and will continue on.
Yeah, we could probably start a club of these grandmothers – but I wouldn’t change a thing and I’m sure you wouldn’t either.
Love those grands and great-grands.
Thanks for stopping by, Iris
The littles are SO lucky to have you do this for them. Because they will have them for their entire lives and think of you every Christmas.
Sweet thoughts – I hope that happens. So far the grown grandkids have expected a stocking for their spouse, so of course I have to do one for the little guys.
You’re so funny, Iris! The stockings are beautiful. You are so talented and what a wonderful gift and keepsake for your grandchildren and great-grandchildren!!
What a nice compliment. I don’t consider myself particularly talented, this is a craft most anyone could do if they really wanted to. I think most of the grandkids like their stocking and even use them since they’re grown. Who knows how many I’ll need to make. Thanks for the compliment and for stopping by.
