my children's christmas stockings

One of my favorite possessions is these Christmas stockings my mother made for my 3 children. Many years ago when my father was ill and mostly sedentary she wanted to find a hobby so she could sit with him for long periods. She thought cross stitching would be perfect and went to work on these stockings even though she was a novice. I love Christmas time when I can pull out these beautiful stockings and hang them over the fireplace to enjoy!
