Now that it’s that time of year to give gifts to loved ones and friends, I’m going to tell you a secret.
I like to make homemade gifts. For older folk who need little, I make food items, or give plants. I also like to knit slippers, hats and scarfs. I know many people look down on homemade gifts, but I have more time and love than money, so if they don’t like them that is not my problem, but I think it’s sad. One year I worked for days making a wonderful gift platter of many kinds of goodies, and had it quickly passed off as just something for the menu. Then I had no gift to give. It was pretty sad.
Well anyway, I’ll be posting some instructions and pictures for some of the things I’ll be making.
