I just saw that issue last night and was admiring the stockings on the front. I was licky enough to get one of her red toile stockings last year:>)


Wow, your Mom's stockings are so FABULOUS! They make the cover of that magazine look great, makes you want to pick it up and buy it without even looking inside. xo, suzy


I, too, just saw this issue and had it in my hands. LOVE the hanky stockings!!! I'm off today to get the magazine when I have more time to spend standing in line!

wishes, true and kind

Very cool! Great stockings!


I saw the magazine the other day and snapped it right up! I've already been through it 3 times but mostly I just enjoy looking at the cover. Your mom did a beautiful job (and I'll be she's very proud of you too!). :)


Your mum is amazing. I'm going to go out and buy that issue. I love love love those stockings.

I sew myself but, I bought one of your mom's stockings last year. They are just gorgeous with the vintage fabric combined with your fabric. When I saw them on Romantic Home's cover I knew right away who had made them. She does beautiful work and your fabrics are the perfect choice for them.


Wow! The stockings are lovely! Congrats to your mom!

I remember your mom's stockings from last year, they are just as adorable! Congrats to your mom for making the cover!


Hi Tanya,

What gorgeous stockings!!! I am making my own this year, so hopefully they will look half as nice as your mums.

Just wanted to thank you for designing such GORGEOUS fabric, I LOVE your fabric, so much so I based my entire daughter's 5th birthday party last weekend on your Darla range. It was devine, even better IRL than the pictures showed ;-)
