|She was said she loved berets and pompoms last week... today she got this.|
Hobbit watches me make things all the time. She knows about the time and effort involved. She understands that if you appreciate the pretty things that Mama makes for you then Mama will make you more... even take requests for items - the subtle and the not so subtle alike.
So why do I make such things for Hobbit, who is barely 7-year-old... simply because of the reaction I get when I do. Squeals of delight, dimples galore and all the hugs and kisses I can stand. If that isn't appreciation then I certainly don't know what is... and I dare say that if every handmade item you gave earned you that type of reaction, you'd continue to make them too.
