this is great. i love the idea, and the sentiment. it looks awesome. good friend!

Thanks so much!

awesome project, even more awesome sentiment

and where oh where do you find potter toile in this world...

Thank you!  I bought it from an interior designer who was clearing out inventory. If I remember correctly, the date on the selvage was sometime in the late 1980s.  I was so afraid of cutting it incorrectly (since I didn't have a plan for mounting it, etc when I started) that I worked on it while it was still attached to 2 yards of 54" material!  Awkward!

Thank you!  One of my favorite parts is how the story of the fox tricking the duck turns into him commiserating with her mostly by putting him in an argyle sweater.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

lol, this is great. I have this fabric in a quilt for my little boy. So your quote (which is a perfect sentiment for how I feel about cancer too) wouldn't work on his stuff, but I LOVE the idea of adding embroidery over the top of a toile fabric. Nice work and prayers and blessings to your friend.
