If you have followed my blog or you are family you will recall how excited I was to find this stocking for Emma while we were waiting for her. It is the exact same pattern that my Grandmother made for me when I was a baby and then she made one for Mike when we got married and then for Kami and Meghan. Knowing that they were handmade and so long ago I never thought it would be possible to find a hand knit Christmas stocking just like my Grandmother had made for me for Emma. And now all 6 of my daughters have this very treasured Christmas Stocking thanks to the internet and ebay.
While we are at it, the other girls have chairs similar to this so of course Jilliana needed one. The girls go around telling me, "Oh, we will need one of these for Jilliana. (A side note to those who are adopting your first, what you do for the first you will need to do for all that follow. We thought we were just adopting one and during that wait I found a lot of special things that I am now "having" to duplicate. Time to start another 100 good wishes quilt. Anyone out there want to contribute? I am wearing my family and friends out!)
