2010 Stocking Give Away

Today is the day you have been waiting for. Maybe not but it's here anyways. Today launches the 2010 Stocking Give Away!! 

For a list of participating blogs either check out the give away page or look below at Mr. Linky. If you are a participating blog please add your give away post link to Mr. Linky below. I will add your blog to the give away page as soon as I can.


 For my blog all readers including international are welcome to enter. Each blog participating will give you their specifics. The give away will run from December 1st thru December 8th. On December 9th I will announce the lucky winners. Yes, I did say winners. There will be a grand prize winner and two runner up winners. I bought two stockings and made one and then couldn't decide which one to use so I decided to just give them all away!!





This stocking will go to the grand prize winner. 
Measures 17" from top of stocking to heel
Top of stocking is 7" wide
Foot of stocking is 11" wide
Loop measures 3.5"

This stocking is large enough to fit many fun goodies.


I love this fabric.



This stocking will include this quilt kit. This kit has the fabric for the front, the back and the binding. All you need to add is the batting. The finished quilt measures 18.5" X 18.5". If you would like to make it bigger than a wall hanging you could always add a couple borders. Or you could just use the fabric for something else.



I am also including this pair of holiday socks. I love these socks. I don't actually wear them but I do make sock monkeys out of them.

I will also be including a few other items that I am not posting pictures of. I think it is fun to have a few surprises.


front

This stocking will be for one of the runners up. I will be including a special tuck in with this stocking also.

back
I found this at a local thrift store. It is a knit stocking but it doesn't look handmade. There is a spot on the inside where it looks like someone cut off the tag. You can see it in the first picture if you click on it to make it larger. Even if it is a commercial stocking I love these knit stockings. I have a few patterns to make some but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. You know how you buy patterns and then never make anything from them? I do that alot.

2nd runner up stocking


 I also picked up this felt stocking yesterday while Robbie and I were out doing some Christmas shopping. Of course this stocking will have a goodie or two inside also.


So what hoops do you have to jump thru to win one of these stockings? None actually. Any nice comment will do. If you want to tell me your favorite Christmas carol that would be fun. I've always loved Silent Night but I also enjoy singing Jingle Bells and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with the kids.

If you want to post about this give away on your blog that would be wonderful too.

Not to alarm anyone but Christmas is 24 days away. How are you doing with your Christmas crafting?


**We had a problem with a couple of the links but they are fixed now**

Hmm... I don't have a favourite christmas carol as such, but I've just chased my mum down (at the other end of the country) to hunt out my sister's copy of Disney's A Family Christmas album as I've lost mine, and it's just not Christmas without it!

Willa said...

for many years the stocking was the favorite tradition. As the family expanded with in laws, most newbies had come from families without that tradition but all quickly came to love it. Every particepated by slipping little gifts into all the stockings.

Alas, we are very scattered and don't gather any more.
