Family Tree

Today I'm sharing something special that I made my parents for Christmas.

At the base of the tree I hand embroidered my grandparents names, on the trunk I embroidered my parents names and each of the branches represents the kids and grandkids to my parents. I used my embroidery machine to embroider all the names on the leaves and the whole thing is appliqued to the background and I free motion quilted around the tree.

My mom cried when she opened it, and made my dad hang it on the wall right away!

I'm linking up to Sarah and Amanda.

Here's a link back to my list. This is part of #11 from my list!
