Catch the Wind

designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum; published as Butternut Road

This piece was stitched as gift for someone special, my grandmother. I started this piece on 21 March 2002 and finished on 30 September 2003. I received the framed piece back in December. Naturally, Dan at Matte Ink framed the piece. It was my last piece that he framed before he abandoned me and moved to Alabama. I deviated from the pattern by doing the skin over one and converting the hair color of the girls in green and blue to more closely match those of my two cousins. The pictures reminded me of the three of us as little girls. I presented the picture to my grandmother on Christmas Morning. She cried. My mom cried. My aunts cried. It was very touching.
