    I asked k3n to do a wallhanging, using a picture of my granddaughter as the "pattern". I absolutely love, love, love what she did. It was going to go to my son & DIL, but I decided it will stay on a livingroom wall at my house.

    K, you did a fantastic job, and I am so touched that you were willing to do this for me.

    So glad you're pleased with it Ducks, I had fun doing it. The crease should drop out when it's hung, especially if you put a thin batten of wood top and bottom in those li'l pockets I put on the back. ;-) :-D

    PS I was SO tempted to make a little removable piece of your son's behind! But resisted. :mrgreen:

    How cool! Yes I think you should keep it for yourself. May I ask - where was the original photo taken? Interesting to see a bear underwater looking thru a window. We have fish aquariums like that...never seen a "bear aquarium" before :D

    How wonderful....I remember when you posted that photo the first time...
    I agree...that should stay with you.
    We have a viewing window at Lincoln Park Zoo, in Chicago for the polar bears, and have seen then do this, too...

    Great job!

    That is beautiful! I would not want to part with that either. How fortunate you are for such a good idea and a good quilter.
