I missed posting last week because, like everyone else, I have been busy getting ready for the holidays ahead. Amazing when you think of all the preparation and then in a blink it is over.
Since I was a girl, I have been making homemade gifts for virtually everyone - much to some people's delight and other's chagrin. But I firmly believe that the time you spend in the making is time devoted to that giftee and I find that much more rewarding than pacing around Yorkdale trying to think of something to get - that they really don't need.
So, here is what I have been busy making (these are reference shots, not the real deal), so I am not really giving anything away. There is one thing I cannot share until after it is given, because it will be a dead giveaway.
Add to that two more pairs of socks and a dozen red kitchen dishcloths, which are perfect car knitting. They are little gifts and stocking stuffers. And a few zillion for myself to replace ones that are old enough to vote.
In amongst all these other projects has been very little hooking, which is not good, since I have pillows to finish. They may be wrapped un-assembled and then finished up early in the new year.
Not exactly an "urgent" item.
But not everyone has ignored their hooking. I received another finished photo-to-mat yesterday and have permission to share.
Here's the pic and the mat. I think she did an amazing job for a relatively new hooker. Don't you agree?
