Gifts - part one...

I must have been a very good girl (no laughing there!) last year, as I got some beautiful hand-made gifts for Christmas, and I realise that I haven't even shared them with you.

This is a set of hand-knitted and felted yarnbowls that Julia made for me. They are such a perfect match for my living room (and even match the yarn I've been spinning for my blankie!).

I've christened them Mama, Papa & Baby Joe because they remind me of one of the books I used to read to Will when he was small and it was one of those read over and over (and over and over and...) books that he never seemed to tire of. I think it was an ex-library book as it was certainly "well-loved", so I guess Will wasn't the only one who liked it. It was kinda quirky, but then that's often what kids love (anyone else still able to recite the Dr Seuss books verbatim?).

Anyway, I digress.

And here is the close-up of one of my bowls (Papa, in case you're wondering). It has such gorgeous texture and richness of colour.

Thank you, Julia : ))

(More to follow - watch this space!)....
