The Gift

The best gifts are the ones from the heart, the ones that
the person didn't go to the store and purchase but the ones
made with their hearts and hands. Here is such a gift, small but lovely.
Make it and let your heart give this to someone who needs to feel love.


In the Japanese Culture one of the meanings of the
cherry blossom is love, if Christmas should be a
symbol of anything it should be love.

The Dragonfly Stocking

Through out this really bad year for me I have had friends that I know if I needed them would be on a flight without hesitation. I have felt scared but never alone. This stocking is for them, who like the dragonflies in my garden never forget to remind me of the amazing power of nature and that I am never alone. I love them all
and this is my way of showing it.

Toddler Mittens

As we got older and hit the toddling years we got
thumbs in our mittens and our own special charts.
We thought it was because Mam loved us so much and wanted
us to feel special, upon reflection though I do believe
it was so she could tell whose were whose. The love
never needed to be illustrated, there was never a doubt it was there

A Bavarian Christmas.

When I first decided to do a Bavarian Stocking, I thought

all stitches no colour work .But Bavaria and Germany is where

Nutcrackers come from and who could have Christmas

without Nutcrackers.

Mam;s Baby Mittens

Our Mam was the most amazing woman, when each of us
were born she would unravel a sweater recycle the yarn and make baby
mitts. She knit them flat. I redesigned them to be knit in the round.
When each of her grandchildren were born my Mam had the mittens made
and even though the need was no longer there, she still made them out of recycled
sweaters. Unfortunately when my children were born , our Mam was watching from above.
On the day of the delivery I was handed a box, the note was in
my Mam's handwriting and there were the mittens. The ones I thought My children would
not have. I was then handed another box and in it was one of my Mam's cashmere
jumpers with a note here is for you to make the ones I can't be there for.
So I give you a gift that every child should be lucky enough to receive.
A gift of love.

Rocking Around the Christmas Tree

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev'ry couple tries to stop

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing
"Let's be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly" Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
