What can I say . . . a gift of strong black rubber gloves with sunflower print cuffs, embellished with 3-D sunflowers and a bumble bee button! Can you hear me smiling? They were intended for my dyeing exploits, but I'm tempted to use them in the kitchen. I'm already having fun when I play with my dyes. And usually I'm sensible enough to change into old clothes. Washing up is different story altogether, so I'm hoping that the addition of some over the top prettiness will make a difference.
