    It’s a little odd but I don’t think it’s wrong or creepy. Maybe the ex friend was pissed that your gf never delivered it. Or maybe your gf feels bad about not following through. I don’t see how there’s any harm in sending it to the ex friend. Even if she thinks it’s creepy, she’ll probably just throw it out and not say anything to your gf.

    Yeah, I agree with you.  I think that is a little strange.  I would definitely be put off if I paid for something five years ago, stopped being friends with a person, then the product just shows up at my doorstep.  If she is so concerned about making things “right” with the ex-friend she should just send her her money back.  That would be a little weird as well, but not as weird as sending the cross stitch.

    The child must be about 5 years old now and does not need the chart, since 5 years of growing will not be marked on the chart. So I would explain that it would be weird sending that now, but if she is worried that the person already paid for it, maybe she should send the money back if it makes her feel better, but not the chart.

    @anahappilyeverafter:  If I started something that someone paid for, I would also want to finish it and send it, even if that person was no longer my friend.  Possibly more so.

    However, I do wonder how old that kid is by now… the recipient probably doesn’t need the growth chart anymore!

    No way that’s stage 5 clinger status. That would be too werid. The friend probably forgot about it by now – and so should she.

    I am super confused as to why this is in “Pets”…I kept waiting for the part about the dog or the cat… LOL!

    Anyway, if she does anything, it should be to send a refund to the former friend.  Like happyface said, there are five years of growth not marked on that chart, it would be pointless to use it now.  Send a check to the friend and be done with it.  If she wants to finish the chart and list it on eBay or Etsy, that’s one thing, but don’t send it to the ex-friend.

    @anahappilyeverafter:  Some people really hate the idea of having debts. Maybe she just wants some closure and it’s on her mind so she just wants to finish the damn thing and send it off.

    I would probably tell your partner, if I was you, to just contact this person and ask if she wants the thing.  If she doesn’t answer or says no, I would let it go.  Probably better to ask than to just send.

    And you never know, maybe the ex-friend forgot all about it too! So contacting her to ask might bring it up.
