The Advent Stockings are Finished!


The stockings were finished last night, and I woke up with a stiff back to prove it.


I am so happy to have this project complete. It's been years of nagging stress hanging over me that is now gone.


As I sewed the last two, I wanted to hurry – I was so close to the finish line, after all – but I tried not to rush over any details, reminding myself that if I do it right, this could be something my grandchildren use. When they're adults, I'm going to force one of the kids to take the stockings, I'm sure, along with the pet turtle.


My reward awaited me once I finished: hard cider and a brownie from Tartine.


And the joy of knowing this project is finally complete. Woo hoo!
