Day 7 - Handmade Christmas Gifts.

Todays prompt is about handmade gifts and whether you send them or not. Three years ago when I knitted all the time I had the brilliant idea of knitting all my gifts. I had previously made a scarf for my sister and all the other ladies in my family loved it so I thought it would be cool to knit them all a hat & scarf set. I decided this about two weeks before the big day so my idea quickly went down the pan when it took me a week to make just one set.. 

I am not crafty at all although I would love to be. I gaze at Pinterest and pin away at all these lovely homemade items and gift sets but whenever I try any of them I just end up frustrated and giving in before I've started. 

I think I just need to accept that I am not going to be that crafty Mum.

  1. Hah! When I'm back in England, I'm going to come round and start you going in crafty land...then you won't stop! I can't knit for the life of me (I could as a child, and did with my Mum but have forgotten)......we'll have to swap skills.....!

  2. I have been where you are, wanting to make something and then having to give up because it took me forever to make just one thing :)


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
