Christmas Stocking and My Pet Cardinal


I got side tracked from my colouring to finish off the bits of embroidery on grandson's stocking.  I decided to include his name, a snowman, a tree and snowflakes;  I also sewed on two hearts to represent his parents who love him so very much.
I still have a bunch of wrapping to do.  I like to take my time with it and enjoy the process, play Christmas music and sip a mug of cocoa.
