Dave’s Christmas Stocking (Family Christmas Stocking)

I just love that this stocking represents everyone in the family! Daddy (Dave) represented by Santa Claus loves poker-note the cards and die in his hands and on the table. Mommy (Joan) is represented by Mrs. Claus-she holds the large red sack of presents with more scattered around it and on the floor.

One of the girls is nick named “Birdie”-note the little birdie on the shelf holding the Santa Hat? “Come on Santa!” she seems to be saying, “You’ve got to get ready to go!”. ¬†Also on the shelf is a NY Yankies baseball cap-Daddy is a big fan, and a Wii remote-the whole family loves to play.

There is a window showing a wintry scene to set the Christmas mood-a tree with snow on the limbs and snow falling in the sky-and, what? A rainbow-another fun family reference! I can see the kids pointing and talking about the things that they like or represent them and everyone having fun talking about it! What else? A lacrosse stick, jacks (for nick name Jack Pack!), tennis shoes (mom and the girls like to run!), beans with one sprouting (nick name Bean!), a basketball, a camera, a pail, shovel and starfish to represent the seaside, an artists palette and brush, a toy sword, and a theater mask-oh what fun!

Joan, what a great keepsake for the whole family! Thank you so much for thinking of me for this fun project!

Ethan’s Christmas Stocking

Little Ethan and his family live near the shore-you may have noticed the Palm Christmas tree and the ocean with sailboat, waves and a jumping fish out of the window! I just love the aqua color and the fun bright red accents of this stocking!

Ethan’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch, but double wrapped for added dimension. The hand embroidery on his stocking includes a representation of Ethan himself, in Christmas red and white pajamas, wearing a cowboy hat, and holding a drum with drumsticks. The family dog, Madison, watches Ethan from behind. The Palm Christmas tree has lots of presents underneath waiting to be unwrapped, but there are a few other toys throughout the room for Ethan: his favorite night time book-Goodnight Moon, a set of blocks spelling his name, a red wagon with a teddy bear in it, and a toy car. Another little “ode” to the Goodnight Moon book is the little mouse on the bottom right corner of the stocking!

Thank you so much again Brandy for thinking of me to make this special stocking for your little guy!
