First Anniversary

It's hard to believe it's been a year already. We spent a nice evening with Nathan and Danielle celebrating their first anniversary. We had a surprise for them.

When Danielle saw it she said, "Yay! Our very own!"

I'd made the one on the right for Frank and I in 2006. A reader of that post was very excited by the pattern and asked to borrow it. There didn't seem to be any reason to hold on to the pattern once I finished our sampler so I mailed her the pattern. But then when I had a married son I wanted to do the sampler for him. What you're looking at is the original cross stitch on the right and a high quality photo on the left. I took it into PhotoShop and changed the date. Once it was matted and framed you can hardly tell the difference. They love it. Nathan checked it out for a long time, "How did you...? That is, is that...?"

Yes, the intersection of domestic art and digital art.

That was a very nice gift for them, you are such a thoughtful Mom as well as a "crafty" Mom!
