Dear Christina,  The stockings arrived safe and sound today and I truly love them. They are even sweeter in real life - although very cute on line. If my kids did not already have stockings, I would be ordering some for them too.  Creatively designed and beautifully made. Thank you! (Now hidden away for Christmas).

Warm regards

Hi Christina.

He’s so cute thank you!

He’s turned out really well. Love the colorful scarf & hat & the expression in the eye.

Great job!

Hi Christina,  

I got the dogs this morning at my office, they look really fab, can’t wait to bring them home to Milo as I know he’s going to love them.

Thank you very much for all.

Hi Christina, Thank you so much for all the sock dogs they are great and you are so talented . We had a hilarious time last night when Paula returned from the shop and told us about the sock dogs ( she knew nothing about them) and said she couldn't understand the message from you , thanking her for the order, and said they look exactly like our dogs and what a coincidence! So we asked her what she did with them and she said she put them in a basket and put them in the window!!! Thanks so much the kids will love them!
