Obviously my husband,my children and friends and listening to Tim Minchin.
But do you know what else makes me really really happy?
Sewing something for a friend that sews.
Its not that my non-sewing friends are ungrateful-they are not.
But they really don't understand how long it takes(to be fair,how can they)?
The time you spend laying out the pattern and matching the print.
Finding just the right buttons.
Trying to get the finish perfect.
Your sewing friends know all this and understand and appreciate that little bit more the time that goes into a home made garment.
It is not a cheap gift-It is a gift that comes with all the love in the world.
And this one is for you Karen.
