Moda to the rescue!

On Christmas Eve at about 5:30 PM, my boys asked me where their stockings were so they could put them out for Santa. With dread, I realized that all the stockings were still packed up somewhere in the attic in one of the many boxes we did not get down this year. I had completely forgotten about stockings! How could that happen?!! I frantically called my husband (who was in town trying to buy me a present) and told him to forget about me and get candy for the stockings! After all, Santa was coming tonight and the boys would not forgive him if he did not leave candy!! I started scurrying around trying to find 2 substitute stockings and I did find one. One had gotten left out from packing last year but that still left me one short. Well, what's a girl to do?? I spied my Moda jelly roll and went to work. I made this in less than 20 minutes but would it pass the child test. My darling boy LOVED it! Whew! I am glad to report that Santa did indeed come and fill the stocking will all sorts of goodies that would satisfy any boys dream! Thank you Moda for helping me out in this crisis!!


  1. You're a very clever girl!! Yes the things we do because we love our kids.
    Your stocking is wonderful and bright and cheery!!
    Have a very Happy New Year Susan.

  2. You made that in 20 minutes?! I am impressed! I couldn't even thread a needle in 20 minutes, lol.
