10 Minute Drill #10 - Gifts


I love to give away things I've made.  This time my sister and my 3 nieces were the recipients of warm winter scarves as part of our Hanukkah celebration.   One side strips of colorful fabrics and one side soft fleece.  Mmmm...cozy!

 I hope your upcoming winter days are filled with family, warmth, and the joy of giving.
