Rockin' the Happy Dance!

This is such a special finish for me.  The Battle Hymn of the Republic was my Dad's favorite hymn. He wanted it played at his funeral and to this day, hearing it can bring a tear to my eye because I remember my Daddy's humming this tune so often during my growing-up years...  So, Daddy - this one's for you....



Battle Hymn of the Republic by Little House Designs...stitched on recommended fabric and using recommended floss.

I "cherish" memories of my Dad...

Hugs,
*Sharon

What a very special memorial for your father, Sharon... each time you pass by it you'll think of him :) How wonderful to have such special memories...

(((((((((((((Sharon)))))))))))) What a wonderful finish and a special tangible memory of your dad. I can't hear or sing "On Eagles Wings" because it reminds me of my dad. It brings tears to my eyes but gladness to my heart, that I had such a special guy as my father. I'm glad that you did, too. Big hugs.

Sharon, you did a great job on this beautiful finish, and what a lovely tribute to your precious Dad! He would have loved this, but I can envision he looks upon it with great pride in you on behalf of him.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog!
