Gifts for my nephew




My nephew got married on Saturday and I am posting pictures of the gifts I made for them.

They are divers and photographers and have some Wonderful photos of different fish, and underwater coral. I decided to do 3 of their pictures for their wedding present. I completely thread painted each photo after transferring it onto a fabric sheet, placing the background fabric on a piece of heavy timtex, and placing the photo in the center. I then thread painted the whole photo. I made a set of three of their photos and then made the underwater landscape I posted previously. (Here it is again). I just heard from him and they really liked them. It was one of the most fun projects I have ever done - Their photos taken during their dives are
wonderful. All over the world - so interesting.

Thanks Debbie - I had so much fun with these. I knew they would appreciate them as they didn't know I had the photos to use. They were just thrilled with them so that made me especially happy as they are very hard
to buy for. Shirley
