It’s A Wrap!

A  true labour of love
A true labour of love

I love to gift my creations, as I’m sure most of you do.  It is very rare that I keep what I make.  Often, I will hook a project and think I must make one of those for myself, but I never seem to get around to it!

Handmade… it just says ‘you are so special, I took the time and thought to make you something unique, individual… just for you.’  It is a tangible and often practical expression of love.


The saying that it is better to give than receive is so true.  That is why I think it is important to present your gift with just as much attention to detail as the actual gift itself.  I think that a gift should look as beautiful as it can to excite and shout…


For me a gift is not only the present it’s the experience of receiving as well.  Here is the Happy Ripple ready to go

I even wrote a little poem!


And this was another handmade of mine, gifted as a wedding present.

  1. I love the idea of giving a personalised poem along with the handmade gift…….it’s a bit like adding a label to a home made quilt…….makes it that little bit more special.


  2. That ripple is just so precious and how darling is the poem, anybody would love to be the recipent of such a gift and your so right with handmade, it’s what I’ve thought all along.


  3. Wow, that are two beautiful gifts! I also try to wrap/decorate my gifts in something exciting for the recipient, to make the receiving more fun. I love the note you wrote.

    Truthfully, I’m not that good at giving away my knits: I can’t often stand to part with knitted work that I’ve spend so much time with.


Thank you for taking the time out to leave me a're amazing!
