It's always fun to dig into the holiday decorations box.  I had forgotten about the stocking I made for Adorable Boyfriend last year.  He loves mountain climbing, so wool socks and crampons seemed very fitting.  I used little black nubby buttons to look like shoelace hooks.  I was going off the cuff, so it's not perfect, but I was pretty pleased with the end result.

I don't have my own stocking in Portland, so I whipped one up this afternoon out of some scraps of Sari fabric that I have been hanging on to.  See?  Hoarding pays off.  Everything eventually finds a purpose.  I wouldn't say that sequins typify my personality by any means, but the colors were just too perfect.  And sometimes shiny is nice.

Now if someone would just put presents in it.  I am guessing my stocking could hold about three kittens.
