Getting a Jump on Christmas

Today I feel very ahead of the ball game.  This is not a very common situation for me, so I am soaking it up tonight as I fold scraps.  

My mom mentioned this year at Christmas that since she had our stockings made back in 1990 -something, our family has grown a ton!                             Every year she has to purchase a couple more, making them very hodge podge.  While we are usually very content with not matching, we thought it would be fun to make stockings that were at least all the same shape!                                    So today, my niece and my sister-in-law came over and we had some Christmas fun. It took us a little bit to draw up our pattern and figure out some sort of system, and then we hit the ground running.  By the time the kids got home from school, and we all ran of in our different directions to practices, we were able to                                         get a good jump on our socks. 

After tallying up the current count of family members, we concluded that we still have a long way to go!  We have 11 of the 45 done.  
We're not too upset though, that just means we have an excuse to get together and have a good day full of flying fabric, conversation, and laughter!  Oh that things we do for my mother!  
I just love the print on this fabric!
The completed socks of the day.
