Hi! Complete Craftster newbie in the house...and this is my first Craftster challenge! I found out about it over on Feeling Stitchy, and I wanted to join the fun.

This is a picture of my Mother-in-law when she was wee one in a little sailboat her father -an avid sailor - built for her. I printed it on sturdy cardstock and added the sun and color washes with watercolor pencils. I used 2 strands of floss for all the stitching.

This is just too sweet.  What a cute photo to begin with and then to add the stitches and color the way that you did, so great!

Very pretty, I like the added sun rays and water at the side of the boat.

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