Tristan Stocking - When my first son, Saul, was born I made
one for him, with candy canes, gingerbread men, snowmen
and a tree. The sisters who owned Needlecrafts (now Village
Ewe) suggested I sew on a bell every year. When I created a
stocking for Sauls wife Vanessa, I used fir trees in various
shades of green, to complement her beautiful red curls. She
suggested I use the other characters for their children, so
Tristan got snowmen, and a bell!
