I’m trying for some holiday inspiration from some of my favorite Leisure Arts books!
Stockings are a Christmas tradition at our house. I wait up every Christmas Eve for the whole family to go to bed, so I can have a talk with Santa while he fills the stockings (which are never big enough!). I am finding some stocking designs (among the 30 possibilities) that I like in Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Stockings—
Blue Christmas (Who can resist a project with a kitten in the picture?)
Red-and-White Delights (Love the idea of completely different stockings unified by a red-and-white color scheme.)
Lots of Dots (My teenagers would love this polka dot stocking!)
Some years, when I start to decorate, I want to stick with vintage style, but other years, I feel compelled to work in some fresh fabrics in contemporary colors, and that’s exactly what Jolly Stuff by Linda Lum DeBono offers up! From the 14 or so designs, these are the projects I’m thinking about adding to my holiday décor—
Peace Quilt (Every year, my kids ask what I want for Christmas, and I say, “A little peace and quiet.” This quilt might work…)
And since I’m always looking for something a little different, I’m also looking at Linda Lum DeBono’s New Noel—22 fun designs to deck the halls!
Noel and HoHoHo Pillows

You just can’t beat Linda’s bright, colorful, and easy designs when it comes to welcoming in the holiday season.
