Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit CHRISTIAN

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


"Last Christmas Eve, Peter could never wait for bedtime to hang his stocking over the fireplace. He put it up and took it down a hundred times that day, his eyes glittering in anticipation. It looked so charming there, that I only wished I made one for the baby as well. Christian was sick that evening, and at last we sent his father and his brother off into a perfect winter snowstorm to celebrate the evening's festivities with aunts, and uncles, and cousins. Then I turned on Christmas caroles and rocked my curly, blonde-haired toddler while he watched the lights and ornaments on the tree and I dreamed of his stocking to be." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
