Hi everyone!!!

My boyfriend is a tennis addict! he plays, he coaches, he watches... he dreams tennis!!! And he lives in a freaking cold appartment, so he had been asking me for something to keep him warm while he watches tv, and after 4 years of asking.... (okay i'm a bit slow) i made this for him:

It's a tennis court with 2 of his favourite moves while playing (i took pictures of him playing and then made them on fabric) and 2 racquets which actually have strings, I tried to make them the more correctly possible but it was hard. I even asked him to teach me how to string. So I believe it turned out okay

Me quilting it while the dogs were fighting to keep it (it was the closest I've felt to having children)

Amazing! I love the symbols, and your idea of taking photos is ingenious - so personal too.
