Mum celebrated her 70th birthday a couple of weeks ago so Myf and I were hard at work making her presents. I found some really lovely merino wool in gorgeous dark green so I turned to the 'Happy Hooker' book for the shawl pattern I've done a few times now-
It makes such a difference working with a decent quality wool-wish I could afford it more regularly-but until then, folks will have to make do with acrylic...this shawl came out really beautifully.
I also crafted a small brooch using some of the wire techniques I've been practising:
These plus some home baked goodies and a photo album were the bulk of the gifts but Myf wanted to make her Moogi a special present so we decided on a simple herb pillow. Using a n embroidery frame, Myf did some lovely work and this was the final result before we stitched and stuffed:
Mum was thrilled with all her presents and hopefully will have them for many years to come!
