Christmas in September?

Cross this one off the list...
Here are the stockings that my SIL, Carrie started, and I finished yesterday. They went together faster than I thought, after I figured out how to do it. The instructions were rather cryptic, so I just did my own thing. They are dark red velvet on the back and are fully lined with red satin. I also included a couple of close ups so you can see Carrie's amazing counted cross stitch work. She did such a beautiful job with these. I was a little nervous that I might wreck them sewing them up, but it all worked out and I think they turned out nice.

Wow, those are nice! The X-stitch is wonderful! I wish I had the patience to do that.
