Last month I wrote a post about a charity project - Stockings for Kids. http://pasqueflowerponderings.blogspot.com/2011/10/stockings-for-kids.html. Lyanna Lee of Purple Panda Quilts is coordinating a drive to collect 50 handmade Christmas stockings for kids in foster care by December 1, 2011.
Late (very late) last night, I took a break from making a big batch of baby boxer shorts (custom order) to finish my Stockings for Kids project.
I used Christmas candy fabric with a red, white and green peppermint stripe lining, and added a fuzzy white cuff with yo-yo and button trim.
I will ship it off this morning on my way to work. I machine quilted the top fabric to a thin later of batting using my trusty walking foot.
I have enough extra fabric to make two more similar stockings, so those may show up in my Etsy shop one of these days.
There's still time to donate. For more information, grab the button in the bottom right column of my blog, or link to:

Any big plans for the weekend?
