Normally I hate (absolutely hate) when people ask 'so what was your favourite birthday/Christmas/etc... gift?' (yeah, this post is a little late, so what?) Anyway, this year I am proud and happy to announce it. My favourites were the only two gifts that I expressly asked for: a piece of artwork from my mother and my younger brother. For various reasons these mean a whole heckuva lot to me.
And no knitting lately, soon though, I hope.
(the first is my mother's, the second is from my brother)
