On a Homemade Gift

Over the years, my sister has been known to choose hand made options for her Christmas presents, most notably making me a bath robe and a wonderfully warm fleece throw. This year was no exceptions as I was the recipient of home made blueberry jam and new mittens. The jam was canned at home and after having it on my toast yesterday morning, I can confirm that it is indeed as delicious as it looks.

The mittens are made from a shrunken wool sweater. They are fleece lined and incredibly warm. You can see that the cuff is made from the cuff of the sweater. A terribly clever idea.

This being said, never underestimate the power of the home/hand made gift. These meant a lot to me.
