Westies on Canvas

My boss's birthday always leaves me in a predicament of what to get her for a gift. I mean what do you get someone who already has pretty much everything? Well, being the frugal person that I am, I happen to come across this crewel set in the craft store. My boss loves all things Westie, so I figured this is something sweet and simple and a no brainer. I've completed several cross stitch patterns in my past, but this was my first crack at crewel and it went by pretty smoothly if I don't say so myself. I wrapped up the artwork and included a gift card to Hobby Lobbby so she could select her framing. She loved it and has it framed in her home with all her other Westie collectibles. I was so relieved she enjoyed it. Now I've got to try and come up with another ingenious gift idea for next year. Oh well, I have another 365 days to mull it over.
