We had lime green felt stockings with pom-pom animals on them that I remember vividly. They were so incredibly hideous, but now would be so retro. Wish we (or I) still had them, but they got tossed when my Mom knitted new stockings in classy white and red. I love the new ones, of course, but miss the old ones of my childhood.
Here's a wallhanging my Mom made which I still have and display every year. When I moved away from home, I took it with me (with permission of course).
I told you ages ago about how my Mom learned to hand piece (with templates of course) and hand quilt in the mid 70s. Well this is one of her projects from back then. It's made in bright green and red in about the only 100% cotton available. The large green pieces are actually from a fabric that had Holly Hobby all over it (kind of like a Sunbonnet Sue). The only bit of fabric that is Christmasy is the corner squares which have holly and berries. The quilt is very thin - I think she used flannel as the batting. And the binding is piping.
I can't even describe how much I love this little wallhanging: my Mom made it.
