    another condolence portrait

    I don't send sympathy cards - I make quilts.
    Taking the photo from the obit, I create a portrait on a fat quarter to give to the family.
    This is John, hubby of one of the quilters in our employee quilt show.

    For me with little artistic ability, I find your ability to translate a picture into cloth AMAZING

    I'm certain people would rather have a sympathy card from me! I could never create something as wonderful as you have.

    Very nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
