    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 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.
