Twin Stockings_24 – Detail 824 Spiders web December 16th, 2008

In the Victorian era spiders webs were considered a symbol of good luck and it has become traditional to stitch a spiders web into crazy quilts…I don’t put spider webs onto every piece of crazy work I do sometimes it suitable to a block and I didn’t put a spiders web on any of the first 4 stockings but since then I have learned that there is a Christmas Spider Story and for that story I have stitched a web onto one of the twin stockings and put a spider on the other.

There seems to be several versions of the Christmas spider story This Christmas spider story seems to be the more common version but I did like This version of the Christmas spider story.

    What beautiful stockings! I love crazy quilts and own a couple of antique ones. Yours are real works of art.

    That spider looks like he is going to swing right across to that web!
