Sneak Peek and Exciting News

I just wanted to quickly share a sneak peek at how our Christmas stockings are coming along (yes they still aren't done). I decided to bead Jetty's and hand stitch mine... it was a lot of work. This is for the top of the stocking. Wait unti you see it all put together! To make the beaded letters look uniform, I put wire through them to hold the shape. It definitely helped!

Also the exciting news... Jetty felt the baby kick!!! It was very exciting for all of us (even the baby I'm sure.)

Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Wow, I am impressed! They look great so far!
    Can't wait to see the final product, you may be stuck making stockings for me too!


    !!!!!! So exciting!

  2. Hey Melanie!

    That is so awesome about Jetty feeling your little one move! I was so excited when Tom felt our little one move! It makes it feel so real! Wait till you can see movement! That was weird the first time I saw it! Hope all is well!!

  3. Yay for baby kicks! The moment that my husband first felt Max kick was one of my absolute favorite pregnancy memories :)

    I can't wait to see how your stockings look all finished. They're looking amazing so far!

  4. Thank you ladies! Katie, you can see the movement now? So cool! I love your updates!
    Tamsyn, I agree it was one of my favorite memories! Just the look on his face. Just finished my stockings so I'll post tomorrow! =)
