Advent Calendar

This is a non stitching post, but I wanted to share the advent calendar that I made for my scotch loving husband.

It helped that we had guests from Scotland this past summer and they were lovely enough to bring me 25 little sample bottles of scotch.
Then I was looking for inspiration as to how to make these into an advent calendar.  So I bought some little tubes and cut them down to size.  Then I made 25 little felt stocking that I bought as a kit from 123stitch.

Assembled them with The help of Kip.

And voila! 

To say it was a success is an understatement.
He’s a pretty happy husband.


  1. Oh I love it! I bet your hubby loved it!

    1. Boy, did he ever! He’s even gotten to try some that we can’t get in Canada. We are heading to Scotland this year so I might surprise him with another one next year.

  2. These look amazing! Except I think I'd need to make three sets, one each for DH and the Gmen!

    1. It was so much fun, Astrid! unfortunately we didn't get back to Scotland this year, so no advent calender for husband this year
