Each year as I consider the people on my Christmas list, there is one person for whom I know a handmade gift is ideal - my Oma. She loves handmade, treasures these gifts (she still has the picture I drew her in kindergarten hanging on the fridge), and receiving them makes her very happy.
Last year I crocheted her a butterfly, and a few years ago, an owl...and she loved them both.
This year I decided to make her a little pot of crochet succulents - Christmas succulents, if you will.
I don't crochet many gifts for Christmas for the plain and simple reason that there are not many people on my list who are that interested in crochet or handmade gifts. But when I do give a handmade gift to a loved one and they love it to bits, well that makes me very happy indeed.....
