Hi Cuties. It’s been a hot day down-under today and so I stayed inside and baked a Banana cake, took up 2 pairs of Mum’s trouser and made another Christmas stocking for Amy’s friend Kristen’s daughter Olive.

I’m pleased with it.

I had to pop out to get Dana’s kids from school and take them home. They have swimming lessons tonight thankfully it’s hot. Love Chris
PS. I only have to make Chase and Cohen’s now. Maybe later in the week.

Hi Carol, I hope you can get them done before you go away too. They don't take too long to make. Love Chris

I enjoy seeing a sock that is not "furry." One can see the design and enjoy it's details when on this fabric. I like how the Christmas lights dangle around the reindeer, and the color you chose really match the fabric perfectly. Well done!

Thanks Penny, you are observant. I always try to match some fabric with the design. I chose the coloured circle fabric because it reminded me of the lights the Reindeer had around him. Love Chris

Very nice! Love the poke-a-dots. Send some of your heat to Idaho it is 21 degrees or -6C here. We had a little snow two days ago and it has been too cold to melt.

Wow, that is cold. We never get below 12C - we're right on the east Coast of Australia, so always comfortable, except in the summer time when the heat is too much. Love Chris

Really cute! Are the stockings lined? I love the font too, is it a font on your Viking? Yumm, banana cake!

Hi Suzanna, no I didn't line this. The Hessian (Burlap) was overlocked (serged) so it's all neat on the inside.
The font is one of my Husqvarna Viking fonts. And the Banana cake was yummy, I add sultanas (dried grapes) to my recipe to give it something extra. Love Chris

I love this style using the cuff Kim. It's so much easier using the fabric than the fur I used to sew with. Love Chris
