Second thoughts

IMG_7119It’s difficult to know whether or not a handcrafted gift will be appreciated. One recipient might treasure an item specifically because it was handmade for them, while another might reject the most beautiful piece of handiwork regardless of the hours of effort involved in its creation solely because it doesn’t come from a store.

Currently I’m debating whether or not a project that I have planned is worth that effort. Although I chose the pattern, style and colors carefully with the recipient’s tastes in mind, suddenly I’m not certain that such a painstakingly handcrafted item would have any value in someone else’s eyes. I guess all I can do is hope that they will understand a gift of the heart.
