21 July 2017
It has been ten years since we got married in a catholic church in the Philippines. Although we got first married civilly here in Belgium a year before. I still remember all the preparations and delegation of a lot of stuff with my sister and BFF because I only stayed there for quite awhile. And now ten years has passed. So I thought of embroidering a gift for hubby but it seems like he discovered it while I was preparing for it because he and I shared our google photos and there was a notification on his side whenever I take photos, so there no longer a surprise. Anyway, what matters he likes the gift.

My machine have different number of speeds for stitching and in this case I used them all to speed up but at the beginning I do always use the slowest which is 350spm (175minutes) until I increased it as time goes by due to deadline purposes. The fabric that I used here is from Ikea - Minna, from my stash.
