This is my dad at the age of 42 with my eldest daughter who was 2 1/2 . This photo was taken on Valentine's Day 1975. 12 days later my dad died of a heart attack. This is the last photo of him ever taken.
I decided on a whim 30 years ago (1983) to try to cross stitch him. This is my result.
I tried to do a cross stitch of my mom as well, but just couldn't get a close enough resemblance.
Today I came across this blog called Samplers And Santas and just love her
pear samplers. One day I hope get back to cross stitching and those are what I want to make!
