Vaughn's Stocking: Start to Finish

I'm on week 4 of being sick. Weeks 1 and 2 were stomach flu, week 3 was fever, chills, body aches, and week 4 has brought a sore throat, cough, and a wavering voice that the kids may or may not be taking advantage of. If you call and a salty old man answers the phone, it's me. 

This down time allowed me to finally finish Vaughn's stocking, so here's a look back on the project.

Here's Vaughn's very first stocking:
She was 7 months old and had no idea that Mama had spent over 2 years making Vance's by hand, and that her's was originally purchased for our first child, Daisy the Dog. Hello Mommy Guilt!

Then she had this one:
I picked it up for $1 at Target and sewed her name into it. She loved this stocking, but I still felt bad seeing it hang next to Vance's.

I bought this stocking kit on November 22, 2014, so it took me just over a year to complete. 

The sugarplum fairy was supposed to have blond hair and brown eyes, but I changed it to have brown hair and blue eyes, to resemble Vaughn. I put off embroidering the face as long as I could and had to re-do it twice due to wonky looking eyes. 

Aren't they the cutest?! I'm so happy to have them both finished and think they'll be great keepsakes for the kids when they get older.

Is it weird that Justin and I don't have stockings? Let me know - do you hang stockings for just the kids too?
