So I've mentioned repeatedly here that I have three wedding gifts to stitch this year. The first is in June - the couple that is having a beach wedding in the Virgin Islands. I purchased "Sensational Summer" just for this occasion, and I've had a lot of fun stitching the little beach scene! I haven't yet added the bride and groom's names, and I was still toying with finishing ideas.
The other night DH called his friend - the groom - to chat. I poked him and whispered, "hey, ask if they'd like a piece of needlework framed, or as a pillow, or something else."
Well, evidently the groom discussed it with his intended, and they came to the conclusion that "it isn't something they want or would use." !!!!!!
I guess I'm glad to know this before I actually gave them anything....but it STILL hurts. Makes me want to give them an ugly crystal vase and see if they "want or would use" THAT. *sigh* Oh well. I suppose it is my own fault, for getting all involved in a project before I checked to see if the intended recipients would want it in the first place. Now I have to figure out what to do with a cute little beach scene in a heart -- it is cute, but not exactly my style. Any ideas?
