He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Sorry I havent checked in for awhile.  I had to fight (and i do mean fight lol) to get mine done.  It has embroidery on it and my machine was NOT happy with having to do such a long stitching cycle.  There is a lot of detail in my embroidered item and at one point feared that my machine had died out on me.  It jammed and rebelled and I was worried about my motor being burnt out (yea it was bad,  it was stuck under my needle and took 30 minutes just to snip it out)

However.................................  Its done!!!!  I started over and my machine was fine after all and it came out beautifully!!  I am so pleased with it i might make one for myself.  When you see it something might look like an afterthought on the front.  Its not its completely intentional!!!

I hope you like it!!  Will send tomorrow.

Well i have one item done already.   Its a small but i like it.  I know what i want for my "big" item but am still playing around with ideas in my head as to what i want it to look like.  I have the item i want to use i just need to plan out its "decoration".

I hope it turns out what im imagining and that my partner likes it.  It will be a practical item that she can use daily.............  Ok shut up Tammy before you say what it is lol........................
