This is the last in my series of 'childhood heroes' embroidery portraits, Bob Ross. <3

Here are all of them together, Crystal Gayle, Shel Silverstein, Jacques Cousteau, Bob Ross

I suppose I was an odd sort of child...

Look at those happy little trees! Bob Ross was one of my favourties too, as well as Shel Silverstein. I've long considered getting a half-sleeve of where the sidewalk ends tattooed. Amazing work and a fantastic idea!

I "Wist" you'd stalk me...

If you're gonna dine with them cannibals, well sooner or later darling you're going to get eaten.

oh my goodness!  Those are all just perfect.  You really captured the personalities.  I love Jaques on the fish, and those are some very "happy trees"

Well done!

You may have been an odd child, but I think all four of them would appreciate these. They are a fitting tribute.

In the end the crafts you take are equal to the crafts you make

Happy little trees!   Cheesy

I guess we're all a little odd, Bob Ross and Jacques Cousteau are still my heroes.

Your embroidery is great, I love all the details like the mushrooms and raccoon. And Bobs hair is perfect...looks just like him.

"Happy Little Trees..." My favorite is when he used to paint "Happy Little Clouds" because I never thought of clouds as happy until he said it Wink

I love this! And, I have fond memories of all 4 of the folks you've immortalized in floss. Nicely done!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
