Once again, I wanted to record the gifts made for me by my daughter Katherine and her family, either from stitching or baking.
Katherine made me a large jar of granola that I have been enjoying every morning with fresh fruit for breakfast - a favourite of mine and a reminder of breakfasts in New York.
Fionn made me a jar of 'Wookie Cookies', which I have been sharing with friends who have dropped in for a coffee. They are a big hit.
Veronica used a sewing machine for the first time to make me a notebook cover. It is reversible - either plain purple or butterflies. Really useful and very pretty.
Niamh stitched me a cute and practical purse. I think I am going to keep my knitting markers in it. Her dad suggested the direction of the stitching on the buttons - a nice touch.
How lucky am I?
