Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit LOIS


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


"Christmas at Bob's family home was always such a lot of fun, but very different from my childhood Christmas. My mother-in-law, Lois, always had everything decorated beautifully with a gorgeous dinner table lit by candles. But what I remember the most, was sitting on the floor with Bob's whole family opening 'stockings', which by that time were little gift bags filled with the most interesting things. Each person opened them one at a time, and I was so amazed at how personal each bag of gifts was. So here is a stocking in memory of Lois and all the joy which she brought to this holiday. Merry Christmas." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
