50 Years















Wow, 50 years of marriage. Today is my parents 50th Wedding anniversary. Amazing life together they've had. Several moves around the country, 3 wonderful daughters, 8 gorgeous grandchildren and many lifelong friends. Congratulations to Mom and Dad.

This is a little sneak peak of something that I made for them. They will get it later when they return home to the US.






Close up of some stitching, embroidery and layers of silk and organza. The muslin was painted with acrylic paints and the picture was printed on fabric in the copy machine. I set it with an iron afterwards.





Guess my textile class paid off!
