Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

The snow is really coming down, so why not blog a little and drink some hot chocolate. 

Here are my finished stockings. You should see them in person, they are super cute. The hexagons took the longest by far, but its my favorite (hence, I get it!)
 We had a small Christmas at home but the boys were pretty happy. 
 This is pretty much what GJ has played with the entire time since opening presents. 
Man, I just love those cheeks!
 Then we went up to Tad's parents house that afternoon and stayed a few days. Aren't my boys handsome?
Hope you had a great Christmas!

You probably can't tell, but I do have 3 of the 4 stockings at least started. 10 days to go! SM's was failry easy as he just wanted stripes, no piecing, but I still need to do his lettering so I haven't sewn on the cuff. More hexagons to sew tonight while watching a movie. I did some HST for the first time ever (I know, how can I be a quilter if I have never made half square triangles) and then of course felt like they were too big, but I am not going back. I am still deciding on what to do for #4 and #5, but so far I am liking them.

Christmas Program

No "holiday" programs around here, they sang about Christmas and it was a very cute Kindergarten program.  Great job, SM!

Which do you like better?

I know, I only have two weeks to go, I am sick, pregnant, tired, etc, but my goal is to make cute stockings. I had settled on these:

But then today I came across these really cute one.

So I need to make 4 (and I will probably make 1 more after christmas, maybe two)

With either one, I will have names at the top.

I already have the Riley Blake fabric I got on sale at my LQS, so now I just need to start cutting!

What do you think? I am so indecisive!
