Throughout the year I tat, and knit and stitch and keep myself entertained with string. The creations all end up in a special place and when I need a gift for someone – voila! I pick a treasure from the creations, wrap it up and the gift is ready.
I can’t figure out if I was less active, more generous or if little gremlins are helping themselves to my stash; but at the moment I only have a couple of items left – two little tatted bookmarks.
Can these two bookmarks spur maddening creativity? Will they inspire unending clicking of shuttles and needles? Will they magically reproduce?
With only 353 days until Christmas I need to replenish the treasure chest!
What are your “go to projects” when you need a gift? Is it something quick and lovely? Do you plan ahead and create beautiful items that take weeks to finish? Do you have links to patterns online, refer to your books or make stuff up on your own?
