FO: Pineapple and Cactus

February 1, 2016

Back in October my best friend packed herself up and made a move half way across the country. Lucky for the both of us, The Giant and I were able to take a really short, but amazingly fun trip out there within her first month. Unfortunately this was the last time the two of us would see each other until this past Friday. In honor of the reunion I decided to create a small gift for her.

The two of us are definitely introverts and we both affectionally call ourselves indoor cats. To that end we both seem to have low tolerances for large amounts of people, regardless if it is in number or time. (I will say she is by far better at handling people than I am, I have difficulty with controlling my facial expressions.) This low tolerance has manifested itself in a similar way for the two of us. We both tend to be cautious and a bit “prickly” when it comes to people in general (not rude, just not in your face, or the let’s be friends forever even though we just met kind of thing.) Of course once we get to know people, and let our guard down we can actually be pretty cool/sweet (this is a matter of opinion, but I would like to think it’s true.)

Along the way we found realized a good way to describe our personalities are similar to a pineapple (her) and a cactus (me.) Get it? The prickly on the outside sweet/cool on the inside thing.

Which is why for a little reunion gift I made this:



I took inspiration for the cactus and pot from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, but tweaked it a bit (credit where credit is due and all that.)
