Anyone have a concrete suggestion for Christmas stocking patterns? I want to stitch one for my wife, but I'm not having any luck finding a pattern I like.

I've been gone from this group for a long time - before it became a Google  
digest-only group.  One regular here knows I've been lurking, so I am now o
uting myself.  <g> (Hi, Joan!)

Danny, do you have a specific theme you'd like to use?  There are a number  
of sites at which you can download patterns (for a fee, of course).  Patter
ns Online, Herrschners, Kooler Designs.  Not downloadable, but probably ava
ilable at an LNS - Just Nan (for some rather elegant stockings).  

Many of the hardcover books from Better Homes and Gardens/Meredith Corporat
ion/Cross Stitch and Country Crafts (now Cross Stitch and Needlework) have  
patterns.  Stoney Creek has a new stocking every year.  Somewhere, packed a
way - from a move two years ago - I do have some old patterns from Cathy Li
vingston, who had a lot of designs in the old Just Cross Stitch magazines.  
 And, of course, the old Cross Stitch and Country Crafts had at least one s
tocking every year in the July issue; however, those patterns are very diff
icult to come by. In fact, some of those charts were republished in the Hei
rloom Christmas Stockings book, and that book has become difficult to find,
 so very expensive (I just sold mine recently).

If you have an idea of what you'd like, I can check my stash.  You can let  
me know privately or here in RCTN, although I'm not absolutely certain I'm  
getting all the digests.

Also check out Rosewood Manor they have lovely stockings. I would be  
willing to part with my Better Homes and Gardens/Just Cross Stitch  
Heirloom Stockings Book if that what you would like.
