I know, long time hearing from me.  while I was listening to my audible book on Mandela I decided to try my hands on making him.  here are pictures of my progress so far.


I think he looks like Mohammad Ali.  I am going to cut the brown back ground out and us a different back ground and then have one of his quote on the side (EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON YOU CAN CHOOSE TO CHANGE THE WORLD!)  NELSON MANDELA
to my dc and Maryland friends anybody have any lettering template I can use to make this quote.  and I also have to get some fusible web to make the lettering. 

stitches for now
