Very nice!  For awhile I was doing dog portraits in embroidery, but currently am not taking commissions.  Portraiture is very difficult!

Tyler that would take some doing in embroidery but such a lovely talent...the lady did his portrait in pencil and it took 2 week to do, sorry about the glare on it from the light.
