The 2013 Stockings of Piece by Piece
This is how it works. For each of the ladies that works at PbP I randomly draw the name of a co-worker and we set off to our private sewing rooms to make that person a Christmas stocking. There are no rules - it can be anything. It is supposed to be a secret as to who made each stocking but especially this year, it is pretty easy to match each stocking to personal styles. The stocking above was made for me and may I point out that it is the BIGGEST of the stockings, so can hold lots of goodies. The next one was made for Tracy.
One for Kesch...
... and one for Denise.
This one is for Kelly.
One for Celeste...
...and finally, one for Chris.
As you can see, it is a lot of fun to turn this group of creative women loose with an assignment. We'd love to see your creations, so please, Show Us Your Stocking. I will post pictures. I hope you can get in to see our stockings in person where you can appreciate the detail more. There is quite a bit of handwork involved this year.
Got any guesses as to which of the PbP ladies is behind each one?
While we are in the holiday mood, I'd like to share a couple of customer projects. First Terri made this amazing tree skirt.
Hmm, I thought it was a tree skirt, but I don't see a space in the middle for a tree. Maybe she is going to use it on her table. Regardless, it is REALLY nice! Wendy's winterhouses quilt below is inspired by snowy days and hot chocolate. Speaking of which, it is supposed to get really cold here in the Valley this week with a tiny possibility of snow. Sounds like perfect sewing weather!
