In these days of ultra cool electronics and games, I sometimes wonder if people care about homemade gifts from the heart.
I always try to make a few things for people on my list, but the busier I get with real life, the more I can’t quite pull off my big plans.
I just don’t have enough time to make all the things I want. This year, I’m hurrying to finish some simple cross-stitch Christmas ornaments. Next week I plan to do a lot of baking to take to family dinners. One year I made easy flannel scarves, another year crochet bookmarks.
Yet I always secretly fear that people think homemade gifts are a little tacky or cheap. What about you – what’s your favorite memory of a handmade gift someone gave you?
