Poinsetta Xmas Stocking
a Personal favorite...

This stocking differs from the others in several respects:

  • it's not made for a specific person
  • it incorporates silk brocade for the flap
  • it incorporates handmade twisted silk trim
  • it incorporates ombre thread embroidery
  • it has no jingle bells (too cheap)
  • it's the first to incorporate kumi
  • it was to be part of three part series

Originally, I planned to make two additional stockings, with white and pink-spotted poinsettas, respectively. (I still may, someday...:) I figured this might replace my childhood stocking, which is wearing out, or perhaps go to one of my parents. My mother finally accepted it as a gift this year. She not into totskches, so giving her stuff is extremely difficult.
