As I have mentioned I have been doing tons of embroidery lately. A few months ago my grandma sent me some plain dish towels I could embroider along with some iron on patterns and I was so excited to get started. Then I realized I had no one to give these to so I should wait which was hard but I did.
When we received an invite for a friends birthday I got to stitching.
It might not seem the most conventional gift for a 25 yr old guy but he loves to bake and having some pretty dish towels is always nice in the kitchen. I also thought it would be appropriate since he invited us for a fika party which is essentially cake and coffee!
After I wrapped it all up and was showing Mr. H I had one of those o my goodness I am a grown up moments. I had wrapped up a present that I made myself in in kraft paper with a ribbon that co-ordinated perfectly with the card I had stamped.
Ok it was more of an on my goodness I am one of those ladies rather than just a plain old grown up moments. As a kid I was always so impressed when kids would arrive at parties with a perfectly wrapped up present and I was carrying something shoved in a re-used gift bag. As I was standing there being all impressed with myself Mr. H was smiling and said to me “like grandmother like granddaughter” which is just so apt as if my mother or aunt did this everyone would die of shock!
