Online Advent Calendar - Day 6

Two posts in two days? What is she thinking of?
Welcome to everyone who has come over from Jo's Online Advent Calendar (you see, that explains it)
The theme this year is "Stockings or Sacks?". We are very much a stocking household (Oo-er Missus, that sounds bad). Putting out a dirty big sack just seems a little presumptuous somehow. Note to Santa however, I have absolutely no objection to presents that are too large for a stocking or indeed to massive present overflow!
This one is mine.
It has penguins on it, of course it's mine!
And just in case that doesn't qualify as a stitchy Christmas Picture, here is a little cat ornament I made a few years ago

Large presents are so exciting to open even if there is only a little pressie inside.

Haha...that is exactly what our 2 cats would be like if they had half a chance! The tree would be down and the lights a tangle round them.

I love your stocking too. Very cute!
