Our Souls are Procrastinators

Those who know me know that I stitch an anniversary sampler as a gift for the dude each year; this is the sampler that I intended to give him in {shock, horror} 2014. Well, it's done now! Phew. Don't worry, there have been anniversary stitches for the in-between years, some more on time than others: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.

Midsummer Night Designs, Our Souls
Stitched on a fabric I didn't record, nor do I remember
Called for Anchor flosses.

Me: That was supposed to be your anniversary present in 2014.
The dude: 2000?
Me: 2014
The dude: Whatever, it doesn't matter. I appreciate it, it doesn't have to be "on time."

Reader, I married him. 💗💗

A beautiful sampler regardless of the timing! I’d have thrown in the towel and not stitched all those fabulous outer roses. Good for you for sticking with it. Loved the look back at your other anniversary gifts!

Thank you for sharing the links to the years in between! I enjoyed the walk down your memory lane of anniversary gifts. Nikki, 2014's is gorgeous. Have you picked the one for 2020? Looking forward to seeing your choice! I hope you have a peaceful week.
