New Project!

I have a few projects going on at the moment, but the one I spent my evening working on tonight was making our Christmas stockings!

Adam (jokingly) asked if I was going to make our stockings for Christmas, and, although I was so close to buying ones from Pottery Barn, I decided it would make a fun newlywed project to commemorate our first Christmas.

The final project might be really bad and if so, I'm getting the ones from Pottery Barn, but here's what I did tonight...

I cross stitched our names to go on the top of the stockings! Yep, that's all my handiwork. I haven't cross stitched since elementary school... but what can I say, I'm a fast learner!

Side note: we'll be celebrating Christmas in Indianapolis, and I have a show on Christmas evening. 


  1. Cannot for the LIFE of me imagine you cross stitching. That being said, I LOVE IT.


  2. awww, if we were going to be in Ohio for xmas I would invite you over (only an hour and 15 mins from INDY). I know you hate Ohio but we would still make it fun. I am sure you guys will enjoy your first Christmas though. I heard Indy has cool parts...I will try to find out where because I didn't see them while driving through.

  3. Aww that would have been fun! I'm sure that there are fun areas of Indy, but at least we have an apartment and aren't going to be in a hotel!

  4. I LOVE that idea!! So cute!! I do remember you cross-stitching a little ... possibly because I had been cross-stitching a little too? ;)

  5. Were you in the Wicked in Little Rock, AR? I just saw it and it was phenomenal. Who were you? Living a quiet life as mom and wife here in Arkansas and love thinking about you and your fabulous life on the road....Here's my blog too if you are interested. http://graduatingfromgod.blogspot.com/

  6. I was just in Little Rock and I'm a swing/dance captain. Glad you liked it! Thanks for reading my blog and I'll definitely be checking yours out too!
