I craft for me - I craft for you - to say "thank you!" ...Part 1
I purchased these balls of 100 per cent cotton yarn in a sale in John Lewis in the summer, and I used them to knit dishcloths.
I managed to make four dishcloths from each ball of yarn and, using my Inkle loom, I wove braids to tie them up into bundles.
I sold one bundle on Ebay. I kept one bundle to use myself. I gave the third bundle to a friend who gave me cooking apples from her tree....
...and I used those apples to make my family an apple pie with a caramel sauce.
The last bundle I gave to another friend who handed me a glut of damsons from her garden.
I used the damsons to make a jam...
...half a jar of which I used to fill...
...this cake for my family.
I wish every day was like a Milly-Molly-Mandy story. :)
