My Dad part 2

As you can see, I cut off quite a bit of the original photo. I want to make Dad larger, to fit the fabric Vicki Welsh made for me. I didn't use a flash on this one, but look how perfect a match it is!!!

Here is the right side of the fabric piece, folded over on the back. I love this side too, but I really think I need to go with the 'wrong' side of it this piece. It just spoke volumes to me when I pulled it out of the envelope, and frankly I didn't even turn it over until later to see the 'right' side. Thank You Vicki!!!
I love this! Dorothy took my original posted picture and to quote her, "But I saved a copy and ran it through the colour correction in iPhoto. I think the pink is awesome, but here ya go." Isn't it funny? Dad and his flood water pants!

Now this. This is Steph's latest creation, as of yesterday.
She found the yellow button at Joann's and had to have it. Then she found the sash thingie in her stuff, the zippers in my sewing room right above the machine.
Unfortunately she likes to use black thread, and the black I have is crap, so I will have to indulge in some other threads for her.


  1. I love that photo of your dad. It will be fun to follow along and see what you do with this project. I am very curious about using photos and what techniques you will be using to incorporate all.
