It was my first embroidery in my new house and it was a special gift for my best friend. Special because it's a housewarming gift for HER new house! Yay!
We are so happy for them. And even though we are happy for us too-in our new place, there is just nothing like owning your own home.
So congrats Julie and Justin, hope you find a little corner of your new nest for that little tree...
It was kinda neat putting my name on something and passing it along. I tried to be subtle about it, but it's there. An "I was here" of sorts.
I was super nervous about giving it to them because I am new to this handmade gig and there is a lot of pressure in receiving a handmade gift. I just don't want any recipient (or victim) to feel pressured into displaying something just because I made it.
I won't be scanning your place for it or anything. So please invite me over even if you hate my stuff and tucked it into the back of your closet, O.K.?
That goes for all of you. ;)
