Like There Wasn’t Enough To Do

I have until around 2:00 tomorrow afternoon when Grampa arrives to finish all my last minutes Christmas preparations. As is the case every year, I found myself really low on the stocking stuffers and made a mad dash to the drug store this afternoon to get some more.
I returned home and started sorting them when it very gradually dawned on me, that in my haste to be a wonderful Daughter and gracious host I completely forgot that my father was stockingless. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh! I don’t have time to muck about with such things.
So the great debate…do I spend 20 minutes in the car, 15 minutes wandering through an over crowded store and another 15 debating whether I want to pay $15 for a plush sock that gets used once or
do I just make him a darn stocking and be done with it? Guess what I did?
I cut two pieces of that lovely winter plaid I bought in November and a piece of blue ribbon. I hemmed the two top edges toward the inside, then with right sides together and ribbon pinned near the top back on the inside, I stitched all the way around with a very generous seam allowance.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
