"os ferreira" ready to hang

The Ferreira Family is ready to be hung up! This was my first personalized embroidery work for someone very special. Mary's mom turned 60 last week and this was one of her many gifts. Mary and I talked it through about what small details would characterize each family member, like her sister's ponytails, her mom's apron, the knee patches on her brother's pants and Mary's bruised knees. I'm sure they'll choose a nice spot to hang it up. As for me, I really enjoyed do this, embroidery is so relaxing, even when the threads get all tangled up. This is my way of slowing down. 
... and I'm almost finished these 3 good looking siblings.
