" A Birthday Gift for my Dear Sweet Sister "



I made a birthday gift for my sweet sister, one that I know she will like.
It's so hard to think of a gift for someone who pretty much has everything.
So I bought a good set of Egyptian Cotton sheets and Embroidered them.


My Sis is into floral designs and I thought a combination of Reds and Gold might just make her smile.

 

Embroidery is such a soothing craft and keeps me sitting for long periods of time. Something I have trouble doing, but my cardio doc would smile knowing I'm keeping still once in a while (so would Dolly).

I used an iron on stencil that makes the embroidery so easy to do.  I'm not crafty enough to draw the design myself.


Since we were small babies, Dolly has been here for me. Although our lives went to two different countries since the age of 19, we always make a point of visiting once a year since.
  My Sweet Sister Dolly.
My life would have no meaning without you!
Tomorrow birthday gift number two will happen when I drive her to the Hard Rock Casino, outside of Tampa.  I'll give her a few bucks and let her enjoy herself on the slots. Then lunch in their wonderful buffet room. 
I know this will really make her happy!
"Happy Happy Birthday to my dear sister Dolly"

"I love you"
