My mom was a crafty person. I don’t think she ever thought she couldn’t do something. I remember her making many Christmas things–a felt decorated tablecloth, sequined ornaments, Christmas stockings.
Something about appreciating handmade things has always been a part of me. So over many years, I have collected those things. When I began, I could pick them up for next to nothing. With the advent of ETSY and eBAY, those items are harder to find and the prices-wowee. For example:
I have made things of my own, too. I’ve stitched stockings, ornaments, and pillows in needlepoint and embroidered lap blankets, stockings, and pillows.
I like these treasures. Are you crafty around the holidays?
