Cross Stitch Gifts
Do you have a piece you gave as a gift that really stands out? Please tell me about it what one it was etc. This piece was by far the hardest piece I ever did and caused me a whole lot of tears. Even when it was framed problems arouse. I have since learned my problems with this piece were nothing compared to others. It's the border that drives everyone crazy. The lettering and picture were great to do. All 3 Pastors and wives liked their pieces and other gifts I've done were well received, but there just was something special about this one and the couple's reaction to it. They still have it hanging in their room. The reaction Pastor Nate and Kate had and the fact they still appreciate it really made it all worth while. I was really glad I stuck that piece out. I told the Pastors in 10 years I'd do it again. Pastor Nate went "In 2013 we can have another piece." Yea but you have to stay that long. We now have a new Senior Pastor as Pastor Brian and Ellen moved to Upper Penisula, so I'm thinking of doing it again for Pastor's Appreciation Oct. 2008. If I can do it in 2007 I will. But the last project I planned 2 years in advance and found pieces I thought were ideal for each of the Pastors at that time.
Until next time. Happy Stitching!
