Not the Tank Engine Thomas

We're off to Dundee for a couple of days soon as John is to be godfather to our nephew Thomas. He's a lovely baby as you can see:-

I wanted to make something a little different as a gift, so, using the photograph as reference, I hand-stitched this portrait.

Once it's framed, I think his parents will be quite pleased. And yes, I know it's green. Black looked too harsh so, after auditioning umpteen different coloured threads, I decided that I liked green the best. Or maybe I'm just odd .......

You've really captured a likeness. I'm sure his parents will be delighted.

what a fantastic and thoughtful gift. His eyes look so realistic.
