The gift

Hello again blogger friends.
Sunday I continued my priority stitching:
I finished all the leaves and words. 
I stitched today too, unfortunately my arm started to hurt, the one that holds the fabric not the needle. I may take it slow for tomorrow, we'll see. 
My bestfriend already moved to Las Vegas last week, so far the couple are loving the place. I don't have the address yet, I always send something on her birthday so it won't come as a surprise if I ask. I don't know if I mentioned before that none of my close friends are stitchers. My stitching was a secret until our group came to my parents' house (we were attending another highschool-friend's wedding that time and everyone decided we all go together), that's how they found out I was into cross-stitch, because my mom, bless her soul, had some of my work framed and some were my "Mother's Day" gifts for her. After all these years I never mentioned to them that I've been stitching still. Only this particular friend knows that I'm still addicted, haha. But... she doesn't know my blog, hah! so posting this is as safe as milk.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!

  11. This is looking great.
    I used to stitch on the train and in my lunchtime break so everyone knew about it!
    My walls are also covered in stitching so anyone who visits my home is aware too.
    Most people who know me in real life don't follow my blog though. You are all my virtual friends!
