Tenacity


My sister Marilyn is making a cross-stitch replica (16 x 24 inches) of her grand daughter's graduation photo. This is the third photo she has cross-stitched: the first was her grand daughter's junior photo, then her grandson's graduation portrait, and now this portrait.

Here is the finished replica of her grandson. The original photo is in the bottom right corner. Even the white background is made of individual stitches. These portraits are a labor of love.

I am not so sure that I would have the patience or the tenacity to take on such a project.
