Hi everyone!
A friend a work invited me to her bday party, so I whipped up this little cross stitched piece and set it into a zippered pouch.  I wish I could post a picture of her because I tried to make it look pretty accurate.  She always wears her hair like this and has on pink scrubs.  I think she liked it pretty well, although, as I'm sure most of you know, non-crafters never really "get it."  I really enjoyed working on it.  The bottom word is censored.

It was SO sweet of you to make such a personalized gift for your co-worker! It looks really cute & well done!

Yeah, I don't mind too much when recipients don't appreciate my handmade goods, because I think there is always a small element of selfishness when I make it.  I'm really doing it mostly because I like making things and I like the challenge.
