Day 11 Online Advent Calendar

I don't remember getting an Advent calendar as a child. Maybe because there were 6 children and we were poor! (That is what my mom told me, although I never felt poor.) Anyway, Jo over at  Serendipitous Stitching         
is having an online stitching Advent Calendar. It is so much fun seeing what other people stitch for the holidays.
First big disclaimer: I had PLANNED on finishing two ornaments to show here, but life has gotten in the way. I haven't even finished the Mill Hill Nativity set. Sigh. Maybe in Janurary...
So here are our Christmas stockings. I stitched all but one. Can you guess which one?
 This one is my husband's:
 My daughter's:
 One son:
 The other son:
I would really love to get my stocking done for 2019, but we will see.
Jo asked us to include a favorite seasonal song. Mine is rather odd, but I have always loved it:

I tried to add the Youtube, but had issues. What do you think about this song?

Love all the stockings Beth. Something I have never stitched.

Beautiful stockings and a lovely song. Have a wonderful Christmas

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year. My Godmother used to send us one each year, to share between three of us. Only card, no chocolate ones in those days!

The stockings are lovely, you must make one for yourself too!

I did enjoy listening to the song as I read the post and typed my comment.

Wonderful to have stitched stockings for Christmas!

Your stockings are all so beautiful Beth. I love yours too though I know you want to stitch one. Emanuel is a really lovely song that I like too. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

All beautiful stockings, treasures for them all!
Such a lovely song, I've never heard it before. Definitely one I can imagine hearing at church.
Happy Christmas

I hope you'll soon have a stocking just as beautiful as the others!

Sheryl said...

Lovely stockings Beth, all beautifully finished. Great song, never heard it before

Katie said...

It's been busy busy here too. So I understand not having time. Love your stockings though. Beautiful song too. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas!

Mary said...

You need to stitch one for yourself! All the stockings are beautiful. I can't imagine stitching so many full coverage stockings. I love Emmanuel also. Mary

All the stockings look gorgeous, even yours, but, yes it will make all the difference to you to have made your own too!
Lovely record, never heard it before, thank you for the link!
Wishing you a Very Happy Christmas!

What a beautiful song! It's so unique and I have never heard it before! All of your stockings are gorgeous, but I especially love the nativity! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Your stockings are beautiful. I was the oldest if 6 children, and Advent Cakendars didn't play any part in my childhood either. But maybe that was because there weren't any around when I was young (a very very long time ago!) Merry Christmas.

I can only remember one Advent Calendar from my childhood; a verrrry tiny one that opened up different windows to show people in their houses. No fancy candy or toys for me! Your stockings are all lovely and how special to have stitched them all! G'luck to getting yours done for 2019! I love Emanuel too.
