Abby's Stocking

I love Abby's stocking made with love with scraps from her 100 good wishes quilt. Hung by the chimney with care.........
UPDATE: I can't take the credit for this great idea. I saw the idea almost 3 years ago on somebody elses blog and knew I wanted it for Abby. When I had her quilt made I asked if they could make her a stocking as well with the scraps :)

Darling stocking... you must be over the moon with excitement!

Per you packing post, we travelled this same time and were in Beijing (30 degrees), Nanchang (50's) and finally Guangzhou (mid-70's) and so, like you, we had to factor in boots and coats as well as bathing suits and tank tops!

I wouldn't count on being able to buy tennies in your size unless you have very tiny feet... I never saw anything that would have fit my size 9!

I'll tell you, I took it all. I had a big suitcase and I brought clothes for each climate. The way I looked at is this - no matter how efficiently you pack, you still check your bag through so you may as well have what you want!

Safe travels... this is a wonderful time!

That is adorable. I wish I had an ounce of talent to make something like that! I can't wait to see you united with Abby.
