Victorian boot Christmas stockings

On CQ for Newbies, Mary L. has been hostessing a Victorian boot swap every year for 3years now. Each boot is to include 4 squishies (baggies with CQ stash inside) to be swapped with another boot and squishies. Last year I got a boot that was made by Sharon R. and I liked her pattern so much better than the one I'd come up with that I used it this year. I've done some boots for selling (hopefully) at the craft show and one will be swapped with Mary's swap. So far I have these done:
For some reason I was on a red/black/white binge.



And there's this one with more deep Victorian colors. I've also got some Christmas stockings shaped more like cowboy boots and some shaped like fish tails (with under the sea designs), and I'll post pics of them when they're all done.

I love the shape of these! The middle is my fav, how the enbroidery blows out from the heel... great job, Janet!

I've never really liked CQ boots that I've seen before, but these are just lovely. The shape is right, especially the heel. And your embroidery is beautiful.
