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. :)
