  • Need help Quick for a design from this photo

    I've never made a pattern request before, but this is important to me.

    My adoptive Mother's birthday is Dec. 21st.
    We're all watching as my Dear friend Don, (her husband), is in hospice care now after losing his second battle with cancer. He 's got days to weeks. It'a all so very painful..

    I want to do a portrait of this picture for her birthday...

    This is as good as I can get it...I'm not satisfied with it though...

    I'd like to leave out the trake on his neck....That's his souvenier from his first battle wth cancer 16 years ago...

    While we're at it I'd appreciate any prayers you might have that he passes peacefully.....

    I reallly love this guy...He's been my hero and inspiration for years..
    With arthritis in his hips and shoulder, and dealing with a trakeotomy, he's never quit working on one magnificent acre and a half of landscape...It's just so beatuiful...

    I'll share some pictures later...

    Thank you in advance.....

          Linda,
          Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

          There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

          Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

          In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
