2017 Needful Things…Day 12

Today is the first day of our 12 day countdown to Christmas…whether you are shopping for yourself or for friends these will make great birthday gifts/ hostess gifts/ retreat gifts all at great prices!!!

If you order right away each day you may possibly get your package before Christmas, if that is not a concern to you…I know some of you wait until the end and place your order then…but be aware that some things will not be available and are special purchases for us…like these socks……I am sure Moda will get them back in stock but it will be months/(if ever) before we may have them again…just to let you know.

When I saw these socks in my Moda bucket at market, I was super excited and immediately though all quilters need/will love these!

Mono-cromatic colored socks with patchwork and a great statement for getting those quilts done!!!  With the motto: Pedal to the metal-could they be any more perfect for those days spent sewing!!! lol…My heart was saying have-to-have…score!!! those are mine!!! and also…the perfect gift for that quilter friend who has everything or the one that you don’t want to make anything for because their stuff is alway so perfect!!!

We have a bunch of these in stock but I know they are limited so we won’t be able to order them forever…..if you HAVE to be styling while stitching….here’s your newest accessory!!!  Wear them well my friends…

The Moda socks are reg. $14.99 a pair…but for our Needful Things they are specially priced at $12.99 a pair or if you buy the set of two they are only $24 for both.

Click here to order SOCKS  

If you want to win a pair of socks…Please comment on this post with a good estimate on how many pairs of socks you own?  I can’t wait to tell you my answer…Winners for all” Needful Things” posts will be picked and announced on Jan 1st 2018!

I have had a few groups of people over that last couple of days! So much fun(ornament making, eating) was had by all…I hope everyone has a chance to get-together with their sewing friends for a little holiday time…Do you recognize anyone?

Talk to you tomorrow…

my best….Lisa

    Socks…maybe 5 pair. I wear them when the snow gets high enough to cover my sandals!

    I must own 50 pair of socks and I cleaned the drawer out this fall. I may have a hoarding issue on socks. should I go seek some counseling. Ha ha ha. Peace and joy

  11. Sarah Avatar

    I have about 12 pairs for me. Doing laundry every week for the 5 people who live in my house, I feel like they take on a life of their own. My children do not have the ability to get them in the wash. I am glad they have taken to the 2 mismatched socks. Life is much easier.

    I’ve been eyeing these socks! They are so cute! I have probably 30 pairs of socks. 9 pairs that I made, which is a fun hing to do when I take an evening break from handwork. What fun way to start the Needful Things!

    Finishing up 4 Christmas gifts hopefully. I am making one for myself and the other 3 are for my daughters. My project is one and one half inch squares that piece together to form an old red pickup truck with 3 Christmas trees in the bed. Binding and adding sleeve to back so it can be a table runner or a wall hanging. So cute!

    What a blessed group of ladies to live close enough to be able to come stitch and hang out with you Lisa. Love the socks!! I have a pretty good collection of smart wool and darn tough wool socks for winter but kind of slim pickings on my other socks. I probably only have around 25 pair of socks in my sock drawer.

    I think I have about 20 pairs but none are as cute as those. Have a great holiday!

  21. jackiegski Avatar

    I used to own a drawer full of fun socks….not any longer. I have maybe 3 pairs of those stupid shoe liners when I have to wear sneakers. Or when I go home to Michigan in the winter, I buy a pkg of white crew socks and a couple of pairs of Christmas socks (on sale) from Joann.

    My wish is….peace. My silly wish for me is a sewing room that magically organizes itself every night or 3x a day. Maybe a “Samantha” do-dad that twitches and voila!
    Merry Christmas!

  26. sallyscraps Avatar

    Oh heavens, how many socks?

    Should I include the orphans whose companion has run away somewhere? Without those orph’s I’d say a good 30 pairs.

    I have my socks nicely sorted in one of those shoe hangers (for the most part) by color because I kept going to work with one black and one navy sock.

    Merry Christmas! I have maybe 12 pairs of socks. If I could have one gift for Christmas it would be peace, kindness and true love for others. Our world is in such a mess. I love to sew during this time making one of a kind gifts for friends and family.

    I own about 20 pairs of socks. Ten are ankle no shows for warmer temps and ten are winter wool socks. Some I have knitted and some are graphic . Think sock monkeys and lots of sheep.

    I don’t have a number, but every year for the last 15 or so I give my daughter socks for her birthday, which is around Halloween. It’s an expected thing now and when she opens her package her two little girls are as excited as she is about the socks and seem to think the socks are for them even though they are way too big. I love socks.

    I have 15 pairs of Christmas socks alone. I would wear a different pair every day for my first graders to try to guess what they looked like. Many many other pairs, I wear them all the time in the house instead of slippers. Was gifted 2 pairs of Quilting socks many years ago. Best present that year.

    Living in the cold of Michigan I am forced to wear socks for most of the year. My best day is the day I break out the sandels in the spring–my worst day the day the boots come out the fall. I try to make it better by having fun socks. Many seasonal ones. These would be a fun addition.

    I keep my socks in a pull out tote under the bed, but also have a small basket of socks I wear weekly. When getting ready to move I realized I had enough socks for a centipede and that is a lot of socks. Donated enough to keep feet warm to those on need

    Wish I were as organized and cleaned my sock drawer more often….137 pairs of socks and that’s not counting the basket of lost friends in my laundry room…time to clean out….socks for fun, for comfort, for walking, for dress shoes, for gym shoes, for warmth, for hiking, for winter, for summer……yikes!

  95. needleminder Avatar

    I am embarrassed to say this, but I may have @100 pairs of socks! Between the summer ones, thermal ones , and utility socks I wear to work, (I sand and refinish hardwood floors for a living, and ruin socks constantly with stain and polyurethane!) I’m close to it, and when you add in the handlnit ones I’m addicted to making… suffice to say I’m close to 100. But I NEED these! Would look great with my see through Chuck Taylor’s don’t you think?!

  96. susuquilts Avatar

    I love socks, especially the cute ones like this! I think I have about 60 pairs of socks crammed in my sock drawer. I always buy my daughters socks for Christmas. I forgot one year and they kept asking where their socks were.

  97. Barbara Lotthammer Avatar
    Barbara Lotthammer

    My daughters thought all my socks were atrocious so last year for Christmas they both gave me socks. Together they gave me 42 pair. Plus I couldn’t get rid of all my old ones so if you add those in plus all my outdoor boot socks I probably have closer to 75-80. That doesn’t count the knee high nylons I had left over from my working days which is probably another 50 pair.

    I know I can go 3 weeks without washing a load of socks for me. I guess I’d have to say I have about 25 pairs of hand-knitted socks in my drawer. The store-bought ones I don’t really count …. they are only for walking the dog and doing yard work! Would love to win these Moda socks. For sure my retreat friends would be JEALOUS!!

    Oh, these socks are really cute! If I had to guess I’d say between 12-15 pairs of socks. Some made to be mismatched which are so fun and one pair of leg warmers from ages ago. This Cali girl only needs socks in the dead of winter.

    I really don’t know how many socks I have. I started collecting socks with every quilt trip that started with a trip to the Chicago quilt show several years ago. I forgot my socks and hunted for 2 days to find a pair of socks at the show. So now it is tradition to get socks whenever I go on a Quilt or any trip. My last quilt trip I got socks in Iceland.

    I have about 60 pairs of socks — because there are winter socks, summer socks, in between socks and special over the other sock, socks! High socks, low socks, socks you can’t see when wearing them, and then of course there are black ones, white ones, and colored ones — I have a lot of socks!

    I want to win a pair of socks…an estimate on how many pairs of socks I own…way too many. I have thin below ankle socks, regular ankle socks, trouser socks, thin boot socks, thick boot socks….you get the idea. With 4 full seasons of weather here in the NE and outdoor activities from walking to snow shoeing one needs to be prepared. Believe me I try to be prepared. 🙂

    Oh dear, at least 30. Plus I just cleaned out my sock drawer and all the ones in good shape (another 30) I’m taking to the shelter. I’ve finally had to ask my family to not give me any more socks – no matter how much I like them!

    I would estimate around 20 pairs of socks , some that probably should be tossed and wouldn’t it be great to put these cuties in their place

    I have a fair amount of socks, 30-35 pairs I’m guessing and that’s not counting a bunch of unopened socks I bought on sale! Even though I live in Florida I always run towards cold feet!

    I love your blog! 3 dozen socks is my guess. Next, I decided to count them. After throwing out the holey ones, I had 38! I gave my daughter ones that I never wear and now I have 30.

    What a question! I can only guess – maybe 150! Holiday socks, warm wool socks, “dress” pants socks, tennis shoe socks, and old, old socks for mowing lawn. Living in Iowa we need to be prepared for everything.

    Between everyday socks, work socks, novelty socks, athletic socks, I probably have 100 pair. Oh my…

    I took a mental photo of my sock drawer and guessed at 75. Maybe the next time I do laundry I’ll do an actual count. I didn’t buy these as I don’t buy socks which are this tall on the leg. I prefer shorter ones.

    The number of socks I have depends on if you count those that don’t have a mate. My dryer gives me lint in place of a sock now and then. I hang onto loners just in case the mate magically reappears (which hasn’t happened yet). I love funny socks.

    I have about 50 pairs of socks but I tend to wear the same ones over and over again until they get a hole in them. When that happens, into the trash they go. I do have a pair of red and white stripe socks that I wear probably once a week, winter and summer. I love them.

      Hmmm…I probably have about 90 to 100 pair if you are including footies and knee highs. However, I do not have ANY sewing socks and I think those would be magical!!! Now a question for you…are you supposed to throw socks away if they get really thin on the bottoms even if they are your warmest, favorite socks?

The other half are more like footies socks super thin ones that i wouldnt dare yry a shoe on with rhem in public, and a few are my husbands that he still wears. Of there is one thing i hate spending money on its socks! Because no one will see them!

  199. Jan Avatar

    I just don’t have time to count them but I have 4 drawers full. I had to wear an uniform for work so socks were my way of personal reflection. One drawer has holiday socks ie Christmas, Hearts, Easter, Halloween, St Pats etc. one drawer is short socks for summer & sports. One drawer is a mixture of regular socks with designs or different thicknesses. And the drawer with the least is the new sock drawer. Guess you could say that was my splurge with my husband shaking his head. Do an estimate would be over 100 +/- . When the thick ones get stretched out they become dust rags so I’m not counting them. If I won, these would be gifted to a quilty friend who doesn’t have enough socks.

    I’m a quilter who knits … 82 pairs of handknit sock – I’ve gifted 12 pairs ( that leaves 70 in my drawer) + 12 pairs of gym socks … or rather, sneaker socks as I do not go to the gym, + 4 pairs ofgifted to me quilt-themed socks + 7 pairs of miscellaneous socks + 3 pairs of boot sock for my infrequent trips to visit my sister in VT. That equals 96 pairs of socks … AND … I live in Florida and mostly wear sandals. But I love socks!!

    I must have more than 50 pairs of socks. I had boring blue, black and white in long and short styles. Then last year decided to spice it up with crazy colors and patterns. Much better. Time to toss out the majority of the plain ones. The Moda socks are very fun!

If my feet get cold at night (I am old) I just reach over & put on a pair. I have NO idea what I have on because it is dark & I don’t want to turn on the light to disturb my hubby. Most times I wake up & I am wearing 2 different unmatched socks! Doesn’t matter-my feet ARE WARM! My guess-probably between 40 and 70 socks in the bowl!
