In this week's library haul, I came across a delicious little book, Homemade - Gorgeous things to make with love by Ros Badger and Elspeth Thompson. I could tell straight away that it wasn't a brand new publication (you probably can too! It's not your screen that's dirty - this book has been well-used!). Yes, it's a couple of years old, and craft ideas become old hat pretty quickly these days, but this one is worth seeking out. It is divided into seasons with activities to match, with stunning seasonal pictures alongside. With winter kicking in sharp and strong here in Hawke's Bay, I am going to start in on the stripey glove knitting pattern first off, and add some cheer to our evening meals with the paper-lined night-light holders.
