Merry Christmas from all of us at The Enriched Stitch!
It has been a busy and exciting year for us. Thank you to all of our customers for coming along for the ride.
This is the first stocking I did for my son six years ago. I had originally ordered a Liz stocking with Santa flying around a lighthouse. As beautiful as the piece is. I’m happy it never came in. There were at least 20 shades of blue. Yuck! And I would have tent stitched at that time.
My stocking came next.
Growing up in Connecticut, we used to go to New York City every Christmas to see the tree. Nothing is more magical than standing beneath that beautiful tree.
The canvas was painted with an orange tree. As was the Chrysler building. I started stitching the stocking in early December, right before the tree lighting. I had decided I didn’t want a big orange tree in my stocking. I was going to make it green. I watched the tree lighting that night and sure enough, the tree was green. I couldn’t understand why the designer would have plopped a big orange tree in the middle of the canvas. That year, the lights had been switched to LED lights, which have a blue tinge to them. My mother pulled out old pictures of us kids standing in front of the tree and sure enough, that tree was orange.
It’s all about the lights.
My husband was getting a little impatient for his stocking. But, in the end, he said “I may have had to wait the longest, but mine is the best one.”
We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.
Suzie, Aggie, Nancy, Mary Susan, Becki, Debbie and Patti.
