I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Mine was super, lots of family, lots of laughs and hugs, just what I needed, not to mention the food--thank you Mom, Dad and all. :-)
I have been wanting to post about the December Country Home for a week or so but waited until after Thanksgiving. I do love the cover with its soft green, faded reds and the stripy "fabric" along the binding. In the middle and back of the magazine I am attracted by the cloth ornaments but especially the felt work on the star in this picture and the felt decorated stocking below that is in the food section. I looked up the source here and spotted this little embroidered box at the same site.
Looks like the Christmas ornaments from Martha Stewart Everyday. The appliqued stocking is called a Siofok stocking from Hungary........hmmmmm I googled about Hungarian folk art and my next post is about what I found.
