Something that I made:
This is a counted cross-stitch project I've been working on since late 2001, so technically I guess I'm still making it. It was supposed to be a gift for my father's birthday in August of 2002, so one year it'll be an ever big surprise that I got it done!
Something that was given to me:
This is a very soft and warm scarf that was made by my friend, Ru. Now that I'm moving away from the desert, it will get even more use!
I adapted this category to someone strange. I spotted this guy last spring during a rotation in New York. Tighty-whities in Times Square, now that takes some balls (Pun fully intended)!
Something with a pig:
Believe it or not, I couldn't find any photo-worthy pigs in Philadelphia! This is a sugar bowl in our house... the curly tail doubles as a serving spoon. This is the first sugar bowl pig I've ever seen, but maybe it's a common household item?
This is a bud vase that was hand-carved so that a small test tube fits inside. It was originally given to my great-aunt by someone in her assisted living complex. I think that it is darling, but at age 103, she has outlived him, too.
