Friendship Embroidery!

Last month my friend Sarah was working on a secret embroidery for me, sometimes even in front of me (which is more complicated than you would think!)She surprised me with it a few weeks ago and I can't express how much I love it!

We are both cancers (born in the best month ever, JULY) so she stitched up a crab, split down the middle and when they are joined together their claws form a heart (precious!) This is one of the sweetest gifts I have ever received, all those tiny stitches and french knots created by one of my favorite people. This is so much more magical than a friendship bracelet or those heart necklaces broken in half that I used to buy from Claire's. Although some of those necklaces were pretty awesome!

We have been trying to figure out what we can sew them on, something that we both have that we wear a lot and we finally decided to stitch them on denim! I'm going to sew mine on a new denim dress I recently got and Sarah is going to sew hers on her denim jacket.

Sarah I love you and our friendship!
