I made David’s aka He-Man stocking back in the early-mid 80’s. It’s counted cross stitch, and has an error or two, but those are hard to find. My Mother made mine, my son, and daughters in the early 80’s. I just bought a kit to make #1 Grandson’s. This year his is store bought and has his initial J on it. I hope to have his counted cross stitch stocking completed by Christmas 2014.
I love our handmade stockings. Each stocking is unique- mine is counted cross stitch, my daughter’s is needle-point, and my son’s is satin stitch. I pack them in a special box each year, and I look forward to hanging them each Christmas. They are among my most favorite and cherished Christmas decorations.
