Growing up as a little girl, my Dad used to cross stitch.  On our door every Christmas, he'd hang up a "Welcome" sign that he'd made.  When I became older, and started a family of my own, my Dad let me borrow his old pattern (thank goodness he hangs on to everything!) and make one for my own house.

That is such a cute welcome sign, and I love the idea of a cross-stitching Dad.  How in the world did a cross-stitched piece stand up to the weather every year?  Did he seal it in some way?

That is the sweetest story and the cutest pattern.  Maybe I should start a tradition like that.  Smiley

We had a finished breezeway, so it never saw any weather.  I keep mine on the inside of the door.

That is really nice, I think it's a great idea! Did he write the pattern himself?

No, it was a purchased pattern.  But I couldn't tell you who made it or where it came from - it was made sometime in the 70's.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
