  29. I would choose Joy (although I like them all) because I want to make new Christmas stockings for my adult nieces and nephews. Their childhood ones made by me were apparently thrown out during a very messy divorce. It would bring Joy to us all to replace what was lost.
    This fabric would get us off to a good start.
