Check out what I got for my birthday! I almost never get cross stitch gifts, so this was a huge surprise for me. I spied this kit awhile back and I had posted the link over on Facebook commenting on the pretty fall colors and the adorable little owl sitting there. I post cool stitching stuff all the time, so it wasn’t something that really stood out in my mind.
Well, my mother-in-law who insists on buying everyone a Christmas gift and a birthday gift every year saw me post it, saw the great comments it got in response, and filed it away in her bookmarks for the holidays. (My birthday is right after Christmas and she insists I’m the most difficult person to buy for, LOL)
The last thing I expected when I opened my gift was this pretty Winter Sun owl cross stitch kit – I was truly surprised. It took a minute to register that I had actually chosen my own gift in a round-about way, but I realized it after admiring it for a few.
Do you get cross stitch gifts? I’d love to hear some stories here, so please leave a comment!
