A note on my process: First I did a pencil drawing & tightened up the lines...then went over that with a fine tipped black marker...finally went back with an eraser to get rid of the pencil marks. I took the drawing to Kinkos to get it reduced to the final size...approximately 5-6". Transferred it to fabric with a disappearing ink pen and light table.

Thanks dellastella, winstongang, beefranck, & cedarwaxwing for the kind words. And yes, cedarwaxwing, I'm working on making a frame for it by wrapping a hoop with pink, cream, and peach ribbons...and plan to hang it from a bow on the top to cover the little tightening knob/screw on the hoop.  Wink

She's so sweet!

You did a great job. I love personalized embroidery. Cheesy


Embroidery can't change the world... or can it?
