waveGreat stuff Val,

Your grandchildren must love all these special gifts, made with so much love & ingenuity. I love recycling things....it gives me a huge kick !  I think I inherited this trait from my father who was a champion of make do & mend; whereas my mother preferred going out & buying new things which often didn't last.
