2 Years Already?

I can't believe how time flies, but it does. On Tuesday, Mr. D and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. In honor of this lovely occasion, I googled wedding anniversary presents and found out that the traditional gift for the 2nd anniversary is cotton. Since he's always asking me to make him something I decided to make him a cotton t-shirt. Now before I could start shopping for a pattern, my buddy Karen stepped in and put me on to the Burda Style t-shirt for men. Once I printed out the 22 pages and taped them together(man was that a lot of work), it was smooth sailing. The fabric was from Walmart. The second part of his present was an embroidered hand towel for when he goes to the gym. Yes my friends, I recently purchased a used embroidery machine for a whopping $80. Don't you just love it? I'm still learning how to use it, but I was able to do this much so far. He liked it.

Happy Anniversary. I'm so jealous about the embroidery machine I want one but don't want to pay hundreds of dollars, I guess I better start stalking them on Craig's list, the towel looks great.

"He liked it."

He'd better. :) That's some nice work - and the embroidery machine looks like it's coming along well.

Happy anniversary! Great that you made something out of cotton for him. On our second wedding anniversary I did something similar: I made him handkerchiefs with his initials embroidered on them. I love to give those kinds of presents!
