Is it just me, or is it a little bit weird to be seeing me back in the blogging world from THIS particular blog? Well, I must admit that I have let this blog fall by the wayside (some would argue I let the other one slip too...but I digress). I could make excuses & such, but I won't.
To be perfectly honest, the onliest reason I am writing this tonight is because of the picture you see above. mmmhmmm...my stocking. See, I am trying to enter a contest over at www.Patternrevolution.com & I can't figure out how to get this photo into the contest. You see, by reason of deduction, I have figured out that I have to put a URL in the blank so they can see my photo. I think. Annnnnnnnd.....I THINK it has to link up to my blog. SOOOOOO.....this is my feeble attempt at trying to be a computer genius.
Anyway, doncha just love my retro/kitschy stocking? I really like the colors, they make me happy. It has class and spunk. Like me :).
The point of the contest is to make a stocking that reflects a favorite pattern or pattern designer, and I have fashioned this one after pattern designer Pink Fig's Cuppy Cake Dress. I have made that little dress many times & it is fun to make & looks adorable.
I did make 9 other stockings, too. See, after 4 years, I finally got to feeling terrible that we didn't all have a stocking...not a big problem until this time of the year. In fact, the ones we did have were generic red & white ones that Santa had to safety pin paper with names on them to so the recipients would know what was theirs. Pitiful.
And I sew.
I'm a loser.
I tried to take pictures of the other 9, but it's dark.
And this was the only one that was being entered into the contest.
I am now beginning to think I may not even NEED a stocking. Looks like coal for me.
Hey...Santa.....could you please put that coal in a baggie so it won't get my pretty fabric dirty?
