Toile Christmas Stocking

I am so excited that Christmas is just around the corner!! What, you say we haven't even had Thanksgiving yet? Well, the day after Thanksgiving is when Christmas starts and that is only 2 weeks away!!

And so, my love affair with Toile continues into a Christmas project. A few posts back I shared my passion for this glorious stuff and a frenchy tea towel. Today I made a sweet stocking to grace the armoire in my dining room.

Everything on my stocking was procured from my stash of goodies. Love it when I can dig through my stuff and find just what I need to complete a project! Especially since Maddy is sound asleep and it's 11:00 pm. When my husband was alive, he was used to me frequently popping out the door to Walmart at this time of night or even later. I am a night owl by nature and they're open 24 hours. Where else can you buy ribbon, fabric or lace at 2:00 in the morning??? But those midnight runs are a thing of the past and a girl's gotta make do.

The sweet little frame is meant for a scrapbook page but I think it is charming with my initial in it, hanging from a tiny black bow. I love it!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I am linking up to the fabulous parties below.  Hope you'll join me!
