From Shepherd's Bush, this is Sophie's Christmas Stocking.
"We don't have little girls at our house, so this stocking was designed for my mother. Christmas has always been such a wonderful time in her home as she prepares to celebrate the holiday with our family. December is busy with the unpacking of a collection of ornaments begun when she was a little girl, the baking of sandbakkel tarts, the caroling with grandchildren, and the frosty, evening visit to Christmas Village. Many of the traditions which I have long taken for granted, have become favourites of my Peter, and I see how happily he anticipates them as Advent nears. So here is a stocking for Sophie, who has always filled our hearts with warm Christmas memories." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
