A couple of weeks ago I had an idea for a birthday gift for Chablis. Her new hobby is refinishing furniture and I wanted to get her something to help protect her clothes from paint and stain, yet it had to be something cute and girlie. Enter my blogger girlfriend Cathy from over at Stitchfork Designs.
Cathy has a cool talent where she designs and embroiders, well, just about anything. Take a look at some of her recent creations....

I emailed Cathy and told her what I had in mind. My specifications were as follows: It had to be a full apron, with a pocket, in either blue or white. Since Chablis' nickname is Bee, I wanted Cathy to embroider the name Bee along with a cute little Bee. She asked me to give her a day or 2 to play around with a few designs and a few days later she emailed me several options.
Let me tell you something - Cathy nailed it! She came up with exactly what I wanted and within days I had the package in the mail. Now here was my dilemma.... Chablis' birthday isn't until July. The package sat on my desk for about 2 hours before I gave her the option of opening it immediately or waiting all the way until July. I know my daughter pretty well and of course, she chose to open her gift right away.
How adorable is this happy little Bee???
Chablis loved her gift. She was really happy with the blue color of the apron and she especially liked that it has 2 pockets in front. The apron is a perfect fit and looks so cute on her. But the real star of the show is the embroidery work. It's simply stunning.
Cathy, I can't thank you enough for doing such a great job and making Bee a gift she will treasure for a long time. And Chablis - don't forget you already opened your gift and don't be looking around for another one. LOL!
One of the things I like best about blogging is the wonderful and talented people I've gotten to know. And I try really hard to throw a little business their way when I can. So if you're in the market for a unique gift (Fathers Day is just around the corner...) contact Cathy and have her design something for you. You'll be glad you did.
