Yesterday I started on some tiny Christmas stockings. These are for my booth at the quilt show too. Again, I made a few of these for the show last year and sold them all. I then made lots for my shop and this blue one is the only one I had left. They are really small, perfect for a candy cane or a rolled up dollar bill! I'm making them in bright, mostly non-traditional colors. Last year, a customer bought a blue one and a pink one and used them to announce the sex of her baby! Such a cute idea. I'll be sewing these little stockings today whilst watching The Big Blue Live on PBS.

Embroidered Hanging Pumpkins
I finished a whole lot of these pumpkins. This batch is for the quilt show that I will be selling at at the end of September. Any left after that will be added to my shop and I will likely end up making more since I sold lots of these last year and sold out. This year I have made some with embroidery and some with little appliqué flowers and leaves. When I display them at the quilt show I use a metal jug filled with tall branches that I harvest from my tree. I hang the little pumpkins from those branches. It adds some good height to the table in my booth and the pumpkins look great hanging there.
