I have received many sweet requests for where to buy these wonderful stockings through the last many years and have finally found them! Here's the story.
Both of these beautiful stockings were made from a kit that my husband's grandmother had made for our first Christmas 32 years ago. They might have been from Hobby Lobby or a similar type of store. Hm... After searching, I found the company that made them. And they're still in business!
Before she died she had made one for everyone in our family even though two of our children were born after her death.
She did a different stocking for each of us. A Nativity, a Noe's Ark, and a Kneeling Santa are our favorites, although she did a beautiful job with each one.
May God rest her soul and bless you all for asking. You can get them at Amazon here.
I see they have Christmas Angels with "Gloria in excelsis Deo" and "Alleluia", as well as a Bethlehem scene. They'd make excellent gifts for your needlework and crafty friends.
I am adding this to my Christmas decorating page here.

There are so many wonderful helps now for preparing for the sacraments, and we want to help you with what we've found.
The Catholic First Communion and Catholic Confirmation catechism cover most of the truths in any Roman Catholic catechism so they're a great place for children and adults to learn or review the basics.
Did you know that the main difference in levels is greater explanation of the truth? Most catechisms, both child and adult, cover the very same questions:
Simple! A child's catechism is merely an outline of an adult catechism. If you're an adult, read an adult catechism for more details and stories from the Bible and the lives of the saints.
If you're new, be encouraged that you don't have to go through all the "levels".
It all began years ago when our pastor asked us to teach the First Communion class, early in our marriage. Later, and after we had taught the Roman Catholic catechism to our own children through the years, using many different catechisms and programs; I was thrilled to find that the catechism is super simple.
In the course of time we developed First Communion and Confirmation catechism worksheets and audio recordings that you can use in CCD, RelEd, Catholic schools and Catholic homeschool.
Whether you're using the Baltimore Catechism for children or a giant compendium for adults, the exact same topics are covered. What a relief to new students!
Be encouraged by this knowledge and encourage your students with the same. Once they've made it through the basics, you've got a great outline to use for the rest of your life unto the great pearl of final perseverance.
