Taylor Swift gift to Ed Sheeran is music-needlepoint hybrid

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Jun 10, 2014

Do Taylor Swift's talents know no bounds? Apparently not. Case in point (or more accurately, needlepoint):

MTV reports that in the new documentary, "9 Days and Nights of Ed Sheeran," the English musician, who is one of Taylor's closest friends, shows off a needlepoint the "Red" singer made for him featuring the chorus of the 2003 hit “Started from the Bottom,” by hip-hop star Drake.

The ginger-haired singer-songwriter framed the needlepoint creation and hung it up in his home, but Taylor expressed some surprise, via Twitter, that Drake-centric arts-and-crafts projects are a rather uncommon gift.

Sheeran has been the recipient of other rap-themed gifts from Taylor, who clearly has a sense of humor too.

Last August, the global superstar gave her pal a jar of homemade jam with a label that read: “Yo Ed -- I’m really happy 4 you and I’m gonna let u finish but this is the best JAM OF ALL TIME. –T,” a comical nod to the infamous MTV VMAs incident when Kanye West stormed onstage and interrupted Taylor's award acceptance speech.
