Another Crazy Quilting Stocking!

Working on some new Christmas stockings!  I did several last year of different types for my big Christmas Market show, but this year I am concentrating on Crazy quilted stockings!  Here's the one I am working on now:

Of course, I am not finished.  This is just the first stage--the patchwork and the embroidery.   Some of the bead work is done, but it needs more.  I love the pastel colors; different for Christmas!

I will share more when it is finally finished!  What do you think so far? 

Do you like pastels for Christmas 
or are you the traditional type?

What fun! I bet these do well at your show again this year :)

Lovely -- so much work goes into each one! I guess I'm the traditional colors type -- lots of Santas and such. A few years ago I was going to switch over to everything silver and white, but Noli nixed that and said she would be disappointed if "her" Santas and favorite ornaments weren't there... so back to red!!

But I do like the crazy quilt stockings! Would have been pretty in my silver and white dreams :)

Ooooh, I love a non-traditional color scheme for Christmas! We don't do pastels, but we do red and turquoise with a few metallics mixed in. :-)
