    Tribute to Dad

    This is an embroidery pattern that I made and sewn out using a pencil sketch drawing of my dad. Attached is a picture of the sketch drawing, and the embroidery made from it. I hope to make another of my mother then use them as quilt blocks for a memory quilt.

    Oh my heavens, that is too wonderful or any words I have. I actually have tears in my eyes thinking of how you are honoring your parents.

    WOW, you are a great artist. I can't draw a thing and I admire anyone that can. Our Son use to be a great artist, don't know where he got that talent, He gave up drawing many years ago.

    Great idea. Your sketch and embroidered block are amazing. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Great Job. My embroidery machine knows how to do that, but unfortunately, I don't know how to tell it to. I think I need more lessons. You did a wonderful job.
