Happy belated Turkey Day everyone! We had a really fun day - hope you all did too :) Leftovers are basically gone... back to cooking I guess!

I did some shopping over the weekend and of course had to pop into Joanne's - this trip was with purpose though (for once!). I needed to get some fabric to fix the stocking - ended up finding this:


And of course got sucked into a little bit more. Their corduroy's were 50% off, and with another coupon on top of that, it was hard to pass these cuties up! The magazines are also great reads - I'll write more about them later.


I finished up the stocking tonight and am pretty pleased with how it turned out - the red stuff was really stretchy, so I used double-sided fusible interfacing and fused it to some thick twill scraps. Worked pretty well :)



Off to bed now, but can you believe that we're already getting lots of this stuff?! I'm not ready!

The stocking looks great!!! I am a bit jealous of your snow although I know it must get tiring having so much! ;) I also love your corduroy finds. Can't wait to see what they become.

You did so good and didn't buy too much at Joann's!

BTW, your snow looks beautiful (we're supposed to get some tomorrow).
