Handmade With Love ...

What a wonderful day it was yesterday.  The sun shone and the world seemed a much brighter place.

It was a little bit chillier than it has been but what a good excuse to wear my new creations!!!

Yay!  I finished my scarf (see the tassels!) and made matching wrist warmers following Julia 'is there no end to her talents?' Crossland's brilliant toasty mitts pattern.


I am so proud of them.


(Do excuse gnarled dry hands!)

I honestly think they are the first 'items of clothing' I have ever made myself and worn.  What a lovely feeling that is.

Happy days.
