We are fast approaching mid-November, which always lights a fire under us for the holidays. Some years I bake a frenzy of amazing breads, which I share with co-workers, friends and family. Other years, I focus on canning pickles or making my locally famous habanero jam.
âTis the Season for Sewing
This year, Iâm taking on sewing projects. I discovered a great website with over 700 sewing tutorials â including patterns and videos that have truly inspired me. Thanks to All Rayâs, I have a recently tuned-up sewing machine. Iâm ready to hit the local fabric shops and stock-up on supplies.
Thereâs something deeply personal about giving a handmade gift to those special people in your life. Handmade gifts go a step above normal gift giving because youâre giving a part of yourself. Recipients of handmade gifts know more thought went into than a gift card or a store-bought gift. It takes time to pick the exact project, to buy the perfect materials â making it all come together, to make it with precision and care; itâs a culmination in gift-giving that sets handmade gifts apart.
Sewing Builds Relationships
I remember the first time I gave a handmade gift to my parents as an adult. It was powerful. I remember the look on my momâs face, and I remember that every time I went home to visit. My craft sat where everyone could see it. She loved it. Looking back now, I know that handmade gift helped bridge our child/parent relationship to best friends. She appreciated what I had hand-made for her; I recognized that, and it made me love her even more.
