My Everything


I stitched this over the weekend, it was an absolute pleasure! The pattern is sweet, the colors yummy, the silk so soft, and the sentiment striking a cord with me as I stitched each letter...each word.


This will be for my hubby; my everything. We'll be celebrating our 16th anniversary next month :)
