Family Tree

What are you most proud of? I am proud that this will be something that will hopefully become a family heirloom, because it is a record of where my parents come from, and where we are now as a family. I finally finished it, and gave to my parents for Christmas, as planned. They loved it! My dad says my mom shows it to anybody and everybody that walks through their door. It feels good that they genuinely like it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun, be proud of what you're doing. Take your time and think the design through as far as the placement of the individuals and family tree style - there are several ideas out there on the internet! Also, make sure you have access to all the pictures you're going to use. I scanned the pictures into my laptop, then printed them on the fabric. I did not do a traditional family tree, but since it's immediate family members then my parents should know who everybody is, right? LOL LOL
