A no sew day............

A long time friend of mine was working with photos on fabric and when she saw the photo of my dad last week on my blog she knew she had to make this for me.  I was speechless when she handed it over to me.  I'm either going to hang it near my computer desk or in my main floor studio.  Isn't it wonderful?

A wonderful memory for you - how sweet that is for her to make it for you.
I hope you are doing well, even though our parents are elderly and you expect them to go and you think you are preparing yourself it can be a shock when it actually happens.
