Every year at Christmas I try to make each of my three children something handmade. Last year both boys were engaged and my daughter was married so I thought—hmmmm-- something for their homes. I decided it should be a collaborative effort between my husband and me. A Lamp!! He made the lamp –I made the shade. Of course, I covered the shade with felted wool and I made it personalized with the first initial of their surnames. They all loved them. My husband and I were pretty pleased ourselves.
