1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Altered Photo: "Memorial" on: March 03, 2013 01:01:45 PM
This was a paparazzi picture of Ethel Kennedy leaving Robert's gravesite that I photocopied onto plain white paper. I painted the white portions gold (minus the cross) to give it an antiqued look.

The block is comprised of vintage (1930's) fabric remnants that I pinned onto a square of batting, then I just free-style stitched and embellished as I saw fit. The two military buttons were my grandfather's during WWII, and I collected the shells on Catalina Island.

I love treasure hunting to find just the right pieces for my blocks. Every piece is a journey!
