Why have I decided to do this?

I like making things.  Last year, and indeed for several years before that, some of my friends and family have benefitted from / been cursed with presents I have made myself at Christmas.  I just become less and less inspired by the possible gifts on offer in the shops.  So I wondered if I could make everyone a Christmas present for 2013.  I’ve also got a bit more time on my hands than usual due to my arthritis preventing me from moving from the sofa too much.

You might think that Midsummer is the wrong time to start thinking about Christmas presents and I would usually agree, but if I really am going to make at least part of each person’s gift I will have to start now….

This blog will be the place to keep up to date with my experiments, disasters and successes in crafting and cooking these presents.  I won’t say who each thing is for (unless I know they won’t be reading – the cat is clever, but not that clever) so there’ll still be some element of surprise on the day.

    Proud of you! I decided to start knitting again and chose a cable knit tea cosy which has left me confused, stressed and defeated! xx

    A great idea and, to my mind, a great challenge!
