Newspaper Article That Made Me Laugh

I've just got back from my mums, where I had a quick look at her newspaper.... I came across this article about receiving Crafted Gifts...  I had to laugh especially at the bit about the woman knitting Mug Cosies on the train!

As a crafter I appreciate the amount of work that goes into a hand crafted gift, and I love to receive something someone has put time and effort into... However, I think it is wise to realise not everyone does!

  1. I did enjoy that! It's a funny one isn't it? I always give everyone at least one handmade item each year, but I do pick my gifts carefully.

  2. I laughed at that too, as, despite being an avid sewer who can knit and crochet too, I never did 'get' the apple cosy thing and managed to upset the followers of the said magazine on facebook by mentioning how ridiculous the knitted beards are in the said magazine!! No I don't buy it, I saw it online lol. I don't give handmade very often now as I am never sure if somebody will think I'm a skinflint cos I made, it or disillushioned to think they might like the gift!! Ha.
