Miscellaneous Musings

Yesterday, Patti, from Osage Bluff Quilter, left me this message:

Me again, Do you get Country Living Magazine? I got mine today and they have stockings made from tissue dress patterns! You iron it onto bondable vinyl. Weird!!

I read the comment early this morning and since I no longer get this mag, I googled it to see if I could find a picture.  After not too much effort, I found it.

How creative is this?!! I sent Patti a reply stating that I could see these used for a gift of notions for someone in a sewing/quilting group.  What a unique packaging this would be for a gift!  I only wish I was in such a group so I could use this idea. 

If you are in such a group and want to make one of these stockings,  you can find the directions here at Country Living's site.  If you use the idea, send Patti a thank you email. :)

Speaking of magazines, I got my December issue of Southern Living today.  I have not opened it yet, because I have been busy setting my Thanksgiving table (you can read all about it here.)
Back to the magazine...........today I sent in my $20 for 13 issues of Southern Living. What a bargain!  I don't live in the South, but I really enjoy this magazine.  At less than $2 an issue, I could not pass it up.

Before going to work this morning, I spent about 15 minutes sewing on the 'Ho Ho'  banner.

 I am going to make the reverse side say "Noel" so this one takes double the work of the Thanksgiving banner.  I hope to have it done by the weekend.

Tomorrow is hump day. I can't believe how fast these weeks go by!


  1. Hi Zoey, I also subscribe to Southern Living. I have a friend who moved to South Carolina and I gave her a Southern Living Party last year. I used all the recipes from a few magazines for her party.

    I also sew, so those pattern stockings brought back a lot of memories.


  2. Beat you, I already read my Southern Living!

    Happy thanksgiving!

  3. Zoey, I am inspired by your finding time in the morning before going to work to get some stitching done on your banner! I wish I had your ability to get things done. So often I think I have to have a solid 'block' of time to work on something when in reality, I should make use of every minute. I have plenty of patterns, but never thought of making Christmas stockings out of them...what will they think of next?

  4. early morning sewing ALWAYS puts one ahead! Great dual banner idea! You continue to inspire me! Happy blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours!


I appreciate you taking the time and effort to leave a comment. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please note due to Blogger changing word verification so almost nobody can read it, I have had to change to no word verification and only allow registered users to comment.
