Stocking, Finished!

I started working on this stocking for Miles just about a year ago, a day or two after Christmas. My grandma made me a felt applique stocking like this when I was little, and she made two for my cousins, so when I think about what a stocking "should" be, this is what I think of. I mostly finished it about February of last year, except for the name. Even though we'd chosen his name, we didn't want to give it away, and there was always the slightest chance that Miles would turn out to be a girl after all. So it's only been in the last few weeks that I've really finished it, gotten the name done and put the back on, and hung it from our bookshelves. I had so much fun making this that I ordered another kit to make an advent calendar. Sadly, the calendar did not get finished for this Christmas, but maybe by next year.
