Buttons and a Wreath

The final seam on the crazy quilt stocking I am making for my son is another quite simple one. 

Red and green buttons were sewn on.

For a motif, I disassembled an earring.

Using clear polyester quilting thread, I attached the wreath to the stocking.

There are three more motifs I need to add to the stocking to complete the embellishments.

It should be finished before Christmas Eve.

I am wishing you all a wonderful week! Thank you for visiting.

This is Day 17 of the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge hosted by

There are so many things on the OUTSIDE of the stocking you don't need to fill it with anything! No, that was just a joke!
Looking great!

You are going to make it before Christmas! Both of these are so inspired. I can hardly wait to see the whole thing!

Your son’s CQ Christmas Stocking is fabulous. I love every element you have stitched and added. The buttons and the earring wreath are lovely. This will be done in time for Santa to fill with goodies to go with your Labor of Love. Merry Christmas Dear...<3

Using an earring-- how inspired! It's really coming along nicely.

Harvesting elements from used jewelry is such fun isn't it! I like the simple button seam treatment - it IS simple, but ever so effective overall.

Thank you, Catherine! My CQ friend, Nicki Lee, used a snowman earring for a block she embellished for me once, and I have never looked at jewelry the same. ;) -Hugs, Renee
