When Inspiration Strikes
Posted by supermom on September 30, 2011
Last week, Robin over at RSIslandcrafts posted her sign-up post for this year’s Stocking Giveaway. The sign-ups are for any blog that wants to host a giveaway for a Christmas Stocking on their blog at the end of November.
Stockings for the giveaway can be handmade or bought. You can fill them or not.

The next few months are going to be super busy, so I’ve been holding off signing up to host a Stocking Giveaway because I wanted to be sure I at least had the stocking part figured out.
I knew that I wanted to give away a handmade stocking but there are just so many different patterns and designs to choose from when it comes to stockings.
I also knew that I wanted to use what I had on hand to make the stocking.
Yesterday, I had one of those wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep times, so I got up and started working on some Christmas projects. I find embroidering to be almost a zen type experience and often when I get into the flow, inspiration will strike.
This is the result of that inspiration and a couple of hours sewing yesterday and this morning.
I’ve still got to sew the two pieces together, make the lining, etc. but I’m super pleased with the QAYG (quilt as you go) that I did for the front and back of the stocking.
If you’d like to host a Stocking Giveaway on your blog in November be sure to sign-up over on Robin’s blog. She’s making it extra fun by having mini giveaways between now and November for those blogs that are participating.
Now for those of you who don’t have a blog or don’t want to host a giveaway, you can still join in the fun come the end of November by visiting the blogs that are hosting giveaways and entering to win.
