SBQ: All You Need is Love

 month, Lee asks, "We like to stitch things for people we love. Show us and tell us about one (or more) of your favorite needlework projects that expresses your love for someone."

You may know that every year since our third anniversary, I have stitched a little something for the dude. (I skipped the first, because it was paper, and got him something appropriately papery. For the second anniversary, I started a stitched piece--it is the cotton anniversary--but tragically, I lost the piece I was working on. So even though we will have been married ten years this July, we only have seven pieces. Let's review, shall we?
2004: Chessie and Me

2005: Ewe and I

2006: La D Da




2007: SamSarah
























2008, the year of the skin graft: Heart in Hand


















2009: Monsterbubbles


















2010: Erica Michaels. Oops.






























Of all of these, my favorite is probably the Monsterbubbles. I just love that quote. We're movie quote people. So what will I stitch this year (and why wasn't it in the Crazy January starts, hmmmm?)

All wonderful pieces! I remember when you stitched the Monster Bubbles piece. I love that one, too but I really love your 2010, over one piece. How did you finish it? Is it on gauze? Very pretty!!!

What a great idea- what special gifts!
What movie is the Monster Bubbles from? I love all the other movie quotes from your link- those are fun to read and they'd make awesome samplers. Lots of ideas there!

What special gifts! All very pretty, but I like 'We've got the stars' best!

The Dude must be one special guy! All of your pieces are lovely and I'm sure represent wonderful memories. The 2010 piece is especially gorgeous!

All great pieces! What a lovely tradition.

Awwwww. You know that when I wrote this question I had you in mind!

For some reason I thought it was the La D Da piece that went missing. You'll definitely need to restitch the one that got away. I too love the monsterbubbles one. I tend to stitch for Eric for Valentine's Day, and then anniversary is something appropriate for that year.

Nice tradition! I think my favorite is the La D Da piece.
