Home made gifts are gifts from the heart.  My most treasured possessions are those gifts, notes, and drawings that the kids made for me as they were growing up.  I spent hours making gifts for family and friends, trying to make something of special significance and value for the recipient.  I have afghans that my grandmother made for me, a lamp that my grandfather made (beautiful), shoulder wraps from my mother, bookshelves from Dad. The list goes on and on, but the gifts that were handmade are the ones I never part with.  When someone takes the time to spend time, energy and talent to make a gift for someone else, they are giving a piece of themselves, something to be treasured.  The shawl pictured above is a gift my daughter-in-law crocheted for me years ago.  It is one of my favorites.  And it means more knowing she made it. I am grateful for homespun, heartfelt gifts!
