We needed a stocking for our new family member and I decided to make one this time.
I experimented with all the leafy fancy stitches on one of my machines and just randomly sewed. The fabric is backed by batting and muslin so it does have a nice quilted look and feel. I used the star stitch on the cuff as it looked sort of snow-flakey to me :) I think Bella will like it!
"We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know the Great Spirit is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains and the four legged and winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that the Great Spirit is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear and love and know the Great Spirit, and then we will act and live as the Spirit intends" ~ Black Elk
