But let me show first what I did for Outi for the 5th package. I stitched a small, about 14 cm in height, stocking. It might be a stocking but not very Christmas type of stocking. The model is from Blackbird Designs, Victorian Sampler. The thread I used is by Nina's, lovely color called Malawi. For the finishing touch I used Nina's lace as well which had the same shades of blue with brownish color as well, Persian Dance.

Now I got a little ornament with dog and cat (how appropriate for me, such a cute little doggie!), + pink ribbon, pins, "Keep Calm" clothes pins, beads, starshaped buttons...

Decked Out for Christmas by Vermillion Stitchery
Sometimes it really blows me over, why do we have to do all the cleaning and organizing for Christmas time? But well since it's needed, I organized a bit too. Got myself instead of my huge (and very unpractical) toolbox some Curver and Tactics boxes for my threads (needless to say that need a box or two more...)
Not all of us are stressed because of Christmas, some of us couldn't care less and are rather easy-going and lazy even :D
