Happy Father's Day

I lost my dad a few years ago, but each Father's day I honor his memory by making him a gift.

I outlined it using a stem stitch embroidery - I use 3 strand of brown DMC thread for the outline. My plan was to frame and hang this piece in my bed room, but my brother asked if he could have it - I said yes - after all, I can always make another. xoxo Al
