The Handcrafter's Curse

I think it may be something everyone who makes things to give to people goes through. There's a little piece of you, a tiny selfish piece, that wants to keep things. Even if you're making them for someone else. Right now, I'm making a baby blanket for a new addition to a friend's family. It's wonderful, and bright, and I'll take pictures of it tomorrow. And I love it so much that I almost want to keep it.

I guess I'll just have to make another (after the second baby blanket I have to make) for myself. And no, that doesn't mean there's a baby on the horizon for us, it just means that I love the colours too much to not have them be part of my life. :)



I just went through that with a scarf that I worked so hard on. It was so hard to mail it!!!(Especially because I feel the recipient will probably never use it. But I suppose it was my fault for trying to show affection to said recipient by scarf.) Heehee! Hopefully it gets easier :) Can't wait to see the pics.
