Stocking up on a keepsake
Deloris Bowers' creations can be found coast to coast. They're usually seen around Christmas -- but are treasured throughout the year.
Bowers has made 71 Christmas stockings for close family members, including her eight children, 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandkids.
She's made 11 more stockings for friends, acquaintances and other relatives, for a total of 82.
"It's just something I enjoy," said the 80-year-old Lake Park woman.
