Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit JILLIAN

From Shepherd's Bush, this is Jillian's Christmas Stocking.

 

"I will always remember the first Christmas Eve shortly after our mom died. My brother, Reed, hiked us to the top of the mountain behind our homes to go sledding late that night. The children had a blast flying up and down the hills with Reed racing after keeping them in line and in tow. When we were exhausted, we climbed back up and sat together shivering under a full moon - our bodies so grounded to this frozen earth and our hearts so yearning to be close to heaven. For Reed - our family's shepherd." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
