The best example of this would be the 15 needlepoints I stitched as end-of-the-year gifts for my high school newspaper staff. Take Kelsey who said she loved purple, cats, and reading “or purple cats reading,” she joked. I felt as if a design for her embroidery had been handed to me on a silver platter, so I stitched a purple cat reading. The others were similar cases.
Mckenzie had a heart for turtles while Mr. Lowman collected bowties. Morgan and Riley both loved cats and were often mixed up or mistaken for sisters, so I stitched two cats that mirrored each other. Ansley loved drag racing, Kaileigh music, and Briana tacos, so each received a depiction of one of the things which brought them joy.
Each embroidery was folded into its hoop and sealed with felt to make a smooth background. There I attached a letter to each reporter.
