Handmade with Love
There is something wonderful about crocheting a handmade gift this time of year. The yarn is warm, soft and fuzzy, and the fun of creating something special for someone special, keeping it a secret, knowing it is a one-of-a-kind-custom-made gift, surprising someone with that thoughtful present... all sums up to joy. This year I made several scarves and shawls as gifts, and even this little fun clown-rag doll. I made a similar one 26 years ago for my son, but hadn't even thought about it again until just recently when I had some wonderfully soft bamboo yarn and wanted to make a gift for a friend's precious little daughter. She is just a joy to know and you can't help smile when you see her so I wanted to return some of that joy to her with a little gift. And when she opened it, her mom sent me a photo of her with it, and once again, that joy just overflowed!
