Default Memories of My Father

I recently took an online course with Annette Kennedy on Craftsy. This is my finished project.
My Dad always had Calla Lilies in our garden, so that is how I named it. I was intimidated by the stitching, so it sat for a long time before I finished. It was in our Guild Show this weekend and now it is on my wall in my living room.
Thanks for looking!
