By Hand


By Hand : What’s the best present you’ve ever received that was handmade by the giver, not store-bought? Tell us what made it so special.

What a lovely thought – to go down memory lane and visit  those moments where a gift touched me and made it special because it was hand made. I have received several such gifts especially from my family.

Starting with my mother who made lovely dresses for me on her sewing machine all through my entire childhood. She made frilly frocks and smart “bell-bottoms”!  Night wear and pyjamas. Saree blouses and  other paraphernalia as I graduated to wearing these dresses.
