Two days to go before the Anton Pieck Parade

Today is the day after St. Nicolasevening. Which means there is a lot of cleaning up to do. With only two days to go before the Anton Pieck Parade I am a little bit stressed. There are lot of things I still need to do and not a lot of time to do them.

My costume is very nearly finished.

This is a detail of the cuffs on my 3/4 length sleeve

And I have added some of the same trim to the hem of my skirt.

The biggest problem now is finding something to do. There are a lot of options but most of them need some preprations and I don't have a lot of time to do so. So i will have to keep it simple. But first I need to decorate my hat and finish the bodice completly.

My husband through away our old Christmas Stockings a couple of years ago because we had tehm for years and he was bored with them. Last year we tried buying new ones but couldn't find any.
So I made these Christmas Stockings a  St. Nicolas gift, for him a little while ago. He got them yesterday and he was very happy with them.

I turned this fleece blanket and a white fleece scarf into Christmas Stocking.

Those stockings are adorable! I've never had christmas stockings myself... It's not like christmas presents will fit into them, right? Anyhow, still very pretty as decoration! :D

@Fanny Thank you for the compliment and indeed they are merely decoration.
