the tree and decorations to come down, and the cards to be recycled. The festivities are over for another year and were enjoyed by one and all.
There is something so special about a handmade gift and I was lucky enough to receive some lovely treasures from friends. Gill P made me a felt needle case, embroidered with a lovely sentiment......
a perfect holder for my selection of needles
A lovely set of metal lantern fairy lights were given the Gill W treatment, she hand painted each and everyone black to match my decor. They will be adorning my wooden twigs in the hall soon.

An unexpected gift arrived beautifully wrapped in baroque tissue adorned with satin ribbons, roses and feathers. It was from the owner of the shop I supply in Harrogate, in appreciation of my work, such a lovely gesture. I opened the beautiful parcel and inside was this stunning Sophie Digard crochet scarf in shades of grey, duck egg, cream, pink and peach. It is made from merino wool and is so soft and comfortable to wear.

I am happy to report that the wrist cuffs I made for the Gill P and Gill W were received with delight so I can now show you images as they are now with their owners.
Gill P's request was for pinks and purples
Gill W's request was for coral, terracotta and sludge greens
I hope you all had a wonderful festive period and wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Until next time......... Jayne x
