Let me first start out by saying, I am no good at embroidering. Don't get me wrong, I love it. However it is not one of those things that I would consider a talent of mine. But when the opportunity came around for me to surprise one of my very best friends, how could I resist?

I've found that when you tell people you work in fiber arts, they automatically assume that you can practically do anything. I would love to be able to make quilts, or to cross stitch, or to be able to embroider like a boss. And so I'm adding to my arsenal of grandmother talents one at a time.
