Christmas stocking - can you help identify?

The mum of a friend of mine has a half-completed Christmas stocking, which
she now hopes to finish. Unfortunately, the pattern has disappeared. Can
anybody identify it for her?

is most likely from an American mag.
TIA for any assistance.

Bernieh, The stocking in question is titled "Gardener's Delight" designed by Sandy Orton/Kooler Designs. It belongs to the Heirloom Stocking series and was featured in the "Cross Stitch Christmas" magazine, 2002 edition (Better Homes and Gardens). I found two links that offer the 2002 magazine for sale:

--Mavis That looks similar to a yearly (?) series of stocking patterns in the old Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazine. I seem to recall those letter blocks on more than several of the patterns. Let me look & see if it ever appeared, and if I may happen to have it.

Please excuse the reply to my own post, but CS&CC magazine did run a yearly anniversary stocking pattern, and "Gardener's Delight" would match the series. -Premier Issue (S/O '85) - North Woods Christmas -July/Aug 86 - Home for Christmas -alas! this is a gap in my issues -July/Aug 88 - Holiday Study -July/Aug 89 - Stitcher's Studio -July/Aug 90 - Holiday Workshop -July/Aug 91 - The Music Room -July/Aug 92 - Sugar & Spice (Little girl's stocking) -July/Aug 93 - Games & Toys (Little boy's stocking) -July/Aug 94 - different designer- the style of this stocking no longer matched previous years. I also seemed to have stopped subscribing to this magazine after this. I have all of the above issues, but unfortunately, I am missing the issue for 1987, and none of my issues have the "Gardener's Delight" design. If you have any interest in stitching any of the above designs (one of Mavia's links shows several) I'd be happy to send you the issue. Now to wash my dusty hands! MM

I'm sure this is one of the designs in one of Donna Kooler's books.
It's in either Christmas Stockings in Cross Stitch or Ultimate Stocking Collection.
Both books are currently available & the Ultimate Stocking Collection is one of the newer books that Hobby Lobby carries.
Hope this helps.

Wow, thank you all so much! That was fantastic work. I do have the Heirloom Stocking book, but that particular stocking isn't in there. Either my friend or I most likely have the actual CS&CS or Cross Stitch Christmas mag in which the stocking appears. It means a trip out to the garage for me...
Great detective work!! bernieh

Hi everyone,
I know this is a long time since the beginning of this thread, however, I a m on a wild goose chase the hunt down these Better Homes and Gardens Heirlo om stocking patters. These stockings have been a bit of a tradition in mine and my husband's families and I am hoping to make these for our future fam ily as well. The problem is that the complete magazine is now anywhere from $59-$89 on Amazon and Ebay. I have tried finding these patterns online but they are almost completely nonexistent in digital form. I have even tried going to all of the older women in my life in search of these patters, but with not much luck.
As of now I do have digital copies of the Sugar 'N Spice, Santa's Workshop and Gardener's Delight, but I would really love to be able to find more and eventually the complete set. I would buy the magazine off Amazon, but as a newlywed we just don't have that kind of money to spend on patterns.
Basically, I am wondering if anyone still has these patterns and would be w illing to photocopy them and send them to me in digital form. I would be so grateful if such an opportunity came.
Thanks for any help you can give!
